In the South, we do things differently. We take our time with everything from lunch to lawmaking, we love our land whether it’s a farm or a city block, and we look after our own.

Legalizing cannabis can unlock massive economic, social, and political benefits unique to the South, but only if lawmakers get it right. Right now, there’s a chance for states to step up and maximize all the benefits of legalization before national legalization, but that chance won’t be here forever. Millions of dollars, thousands of jobs, and countless opportunities are on the line.
