Our topic was about law enforcements concerns about the legalization of medical marijuana (they are against it). It is important to keep up with the issues of the day and the pro and con from each side.
We enjoyed hearing from our Commissioner of AG - Hugh Weathers on the new and exciting things his office is doing to promote SC products and sustainable farming. Did you know that there are 25,000 farms and 6000 immigrant workers during harvest season in SC. Our state’s agriculture business leads in total business output. Buy Local - Buy SC Products from SC farmers.
We had a great meeting with Senator Lindsay Graham. He was on fire about what is going on in Washington from the Judiciary and the appointment of judges to the damaging rhetoric and the constant attacks on the President. He encouraged the audience to continue the fight to protect our President and our future.
