Advocacy is more important than ever

This year’s Hempfest is the most important one of them all. [“Popular Hempfest may be coming down from its high,” NW Sunday, Aug. 11.]

The goal of legalization has been reached, so advocacy has changed from “legalize it,” to how to run legalization. Things are really serious now, so advocacy must be stronger than ever.

The benefit to all society through the benefit of legalization must be enacted.
