A country of pure beauty. A country with a unique history. A country that’s had its fair share of struggles. North Macedonia is full of hardworking and intelligent people ready for a change. Cannabis can be that change. With around 40,000 potential new jobs after legalization, there’s a huge opportunity for North Macedonia — if they do it right. That’s why I spoke directly with the prime minister about fair #cannabis licensing and how to create a clear pathway into the European marketplace. With cost effective land, electricity, and water, #NorthMacedonia is a prime location for a cannabis boom… I know many of you need help in your state or country, but in order to make an impact, you need to have focused energy. You need to chip away at one issue and get involved with your local government. If you feel alone in your fight, find a group of like-minded individuals and start advocating together. Remember, the voices of many will always be more powerful than the yelling voice of one. Listen, I know cannabis will save lives and even pull countries out of dark times. I’ve seen it first-hand. So, if we want cannabis to be an acceptable and everyday part of healing humanity, we need to show its value to the world. People and companies alike need to start talking with legislatures, #advocating for studies, and supporting new #CannabisCommunities. Now tell me, what are you advocating for? . #CannabisCommunity #BalkanCannabis #HealHumanity
