CBD and Hemp Farmers to Protest at the Maine State House
Cannabidiol (CBD) is rising in popularity through edibles, capsules, etc. However, CBD is not a federally approved food additive. Because of this, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services has required these products to be pulled from shelves, aside from caregivers or dispensaries who are selling the products to certified patients.
Due to this sudden change, the industry is facing a crisis.
A Facebook event page has been created to encourage and organize folks to protest at the Maine State House starting at 9 am tomorrow, February 5th. The page notes that the protest will end, "WHEN WE GET A [sic] ANSWER OF HOW AND WHEN WE GET OUR RESTORED FREEDOM AND LIVELIHOOD."
The page also encourages folks unable to attend, to contact the house and senate to voice your opinion.
