Stop Facebook from locking up accounts of CBD businesses

I have been on Facebook for ten years and we have had a good relationship with them. I used my business account to buy ads for benefits I have done for friends with cancer, heart attacks, strokes with no or little or no insurance. I did fundraisers for friends as well as people I didn’t know whose houses burned down. I spent money on Facebook ads for all these as well as ads promoting my radio shows Memphite Music Inner View and That Memphis Music Radio Show. Facebook helped me with all of these projects and I thank them for that.

In May of 2018, I started taking CBD oil and it helped me with aches and pains quickly. After about six weeks I got feelings in my numb feet for the first time in fifteen years. I wanted to share what had helped me so much so I founded The CBD Advocates. From June of 2018 until the end of the year I didn’t attempt to buy ads on Facebook. The President signed the Farm Bill Act of 2018 which made hemp derived CBD legal in all 50 states.

At that point, I attempted to promote a post about my CBD business and not only did they tell me I was selling illegal drugs but they locked up my account. That was in January or February and I argued with them until May and gave up trying to buy ads.

I recently tried to buy an ad promoting the Gina Moore Fundraiser and was refused because I am a drug dealer.

If they handle our money and privacy in the same matter that they handled the new CBD laws, we're all screwed (and not in a good way). Hemp-derived CBD oil is legal in all 50 states. They are preventing these companies from reaching their full potential and it needs to stop. 

THIS IS JUST WRONG and they’re doing it to many, many CBD Businesses. CBD is legal. Facebook answers to no one but themselves. Please sign my petition.
