Allow American Farmers to Grow Industrial Hemp
In 1985, my dad, Willie Nelson, helped organize Farm Aid, a benefit concert for America's family farmers. He's always been dedicated to helping farmers and the environment -- something he's passed on to his children. One of the most important issues for us is allowing farmers to grow industrial hemp -- something that's still not completely legal in the United States. It is nuts that I can walk into my local health food store and purchase a variety of healthy hemp foods but it is not legal for most American farmers to grow and sell this amazing crop. It is time to allow American farmers to grow this sustainable and extremely useful plant, bring back economic vitality to our rural communities, and help rebuild our depleted soils. Please join me and the National Hemp Association to help pass the Industrial Hemp Farming Act which will: Enable American farmers to freely import seeds from outside the U.S. to grow millions of acres of American hemp without a need for pesticides or herbicides and using 1/3 the water needed for corn. Help America rebuild a multi-faceted industry which would generate tens of thousands of jobs for rural farmers and middle income businesses. Eliminate the confusion between marijuana and hemp and clarify the myriad of beneficial uses of industrial hemp. Clear up the conflicting legal status around the use and sale of products made from hemp extractions. End the restrictions surrounding the transportation of seeds and live plants across state boundaries. Remove hemp from the Controlled Substances Act. Thank you very much for your support. - Micah Nelson

Remove THC from employment drug testing in Florida
Our fight is to have THC aka canabis/marajuana removed from companies drug testing. Now that medical marajuana has been legalized anyone with the prescription can be terminated from your position no questions asked. I want to start a movement towards protecting your household income. This will expand the applicants in major and minor positions and lower unemployment numbers. A short story of a young student who lost her rising position at a reputable company because she tested positive for THC. The company did not specify reasoning for the test and terminated her on the spot. She lost her health care, income, and a huge opportunity to move up in the company. Now she is unemployed, can't receive financial support and is struggling to stay a float while waiting for a call from a potential employer. This shouldn't be the case in a state that has legalized medical uses of marijuana. Don't wait till it happens to you or someone close to you. Jobs with career advancements don't grow on trees.

Say YES to Restaurant Depot on Crenshaw. Support your local restaurant operators.
Let's say YES to proper commercial development that will support restaurants in our area, their owners, their employees, and their families. Restaurant Depot is a great business that provides supplies and food for restaurants all over the region. They want to expand to a location that is convenient for small businesses in our area. Let's support their efforts. Our small business regularly uses Restaurant Depot for supplies and food, and we have to drive 30 miles, round trip, on Highway 45, frequently during rush hour traffic. By supporting this new location, Restaurant Depot's professional, commercial drivers will bring these valuable resources closer to us, cutting our expense, saving us time, and making our lives safer. Restaurant Depot's customers are primarily small businesses that don't just provide you and your family with convenient food service, they also provide employment and (in our case) entertainment, improving the quality of life and property values for those around us. This property is properly zoned, with appropriate and convenient highway access for Restaurant Depot's supply trucks and their customers. They are good neighbors, deserving of our respect and support. If you have any questions about our support for this great company, please call me at the Joke Joint Comedy Showcase at 281-481-1188. I'm not joking about this.

Support our action to make sure economic growth and innovation saves employment
By supporting this petition you help create awareness of the necessity of measures to promote inclusive economic growth. Education and bridging the skills gaps can help significantly to assure that the benefits of technological progress create new educational, financial, and work opportunities for all. The Inclusive Growth Forum will be creating work groups, stimulate innovation that benefits all but needs help from a broad basis of stakeholders including governments. Our website Labor economists have estimated that nearly one-half of all jobs are at risk of being displaced by technology or algorithms within the next two decades. The World Economic Forum expects automation to result in the loss of at least 5 million jobs globally by 2020. Whatever the number, the impact will differ across countries, depending on their economic focus (those based more heavily on manufacturing, for example, may be affected more). High-risk jobs are those in which at least 70 percent of the tasks can be automated. Job loss is a real threat for many, particularly those with limited education or the inability to adapt to new job demands. And with job polarization comes economic instability.
