Letter to the editor: On hemp and the government
To the Yes Weekly Editor: The mention that “some hemp products available at Everything Hemp contain the …level of THC allowed by law” disturbed me greatly.
*Editor’s note: This letter to the editor was in regards to the recent article on the Everything Hemp Store opening in Greensboro.
No, not the fact that they contained THC, but that the government determines the allowable level of THC.
Even worse is that we allow the government to have this authority over our lives and that it’s our tax dollars that are used for this.
The government is not an all-knowing or all-powerful deity capable of everything. But even if it were, it has no right to meddle in our private lives. That right belongs to We the People and only We the People
We need to wake up and realize this dangerous usurpation of our liberties by the government that should be defending them instead.
