Fizzydog Posted December 31, 2011 Report Share Posted December 31, 2011 [b]Cannabis: The Growing Industry[/b] After cannabis's speedy legalization throughout all three territories, empty plots throughout the nation became warzones as citizens battled to buy the greatest locations for growing cannabis. The new industry has already boosted the real estate market, generating millions for the country. But real estate certainly isn't the only economic plus of cannabis. The industry has employed thousands who will be working throughout farms, selling the cannabis, or even the dozens of factories which will be turning the plant into paper, saving hundreds of thousands of trees imported throughout the world. Many are still wary, though, such as the Walker county of Northwestern Georgia, one of the most conservative areas of the union. "Are we not harming our children by supporting the act of getting high? And what about those who go to work 'baked'? It's dangerous, and no less worse than the re-legalization of alcohol." Says Mary Sinclair, a mother of three. [b]Brooks County Unrest[/b] Brooks County has been cast into the national spotlight after becoming a haven for refugees from Florida. Lately, though, many citizens in Brooks county have expressed their annoyance or distrust in the 'foreigners' taking up camp literally outside their doors. "We're not really sure how many of thse people are actual refugees. Some of them don't seem to be Floridan, but rather free loaders. The government is giving them money, food and health care; who wouldn't take advantage of that?" Alex Grayson, the head of the Brooks County Refugee Camps, has a different view on the subject. "We're keeping close tabs on where these citizens are coming from. Most are picked up straight at the border, and those coming in from odd directions are questioned on their former residence. We truly can't keep leeches off the system. That's not possible. But we are helping those in need, so that always comes first." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
