Keep Censorship Out started this petition to Facebook

Facebook has begun shutting down Hemp/CBD & other natural remedy Pages and Private Facebook Groups in the United States and other parts of the world.

"Everyone thought that when the Farm Bill passed the federal legalization of hemp would have a positive effect on the CBD business, in particular that Facebook would stop its persecution of CBD and hemp businesses for promoting and selling what it called ‘illegal drugs’. The reality seems to be exactly the opposite. Facebook seems to have stepped up its attack on businesses and the rate of closure of CBD and hemp pages and groups has accelerated dramatically. The justification provided has now changed and Facebook says it is closing these pages because they are promoting and selling prescription medicines."  - Quote from Cannapro-uk.org 12/27/18 - The trade association for the UK's cannabis, CBD and hemp businesses.

CBD is not a pharmaceutical or prescription medicine! It is a non-psychoactive naturally occurring substance in the 100% legal hemp plant, as per the Farm Bill. Thousands of people have used this safe, natural substance to find relief from a variety of pains and illnesses and they should be allowed to continue using it as desired and talk about it as desired, per the 1st Amendment. It should also continued to be researched and claims vetted but that is not a pre-requisite for discussion among adults.

Facebook has no right, and there is no need to censor the discussions that consumers have about legal products on Facebook. We support Facebook penalizing companies for making false drug claims on Facebook but this should NOT remove useful facebook groups that consumers use to discuss legal topics in the process.

Facebook is a source of free conversation on the internet and we need to keep unnecessary censorship OUT. Sign and share with a friend...
