NDM Candidate platform is legalizing ganja

I received this press release and thought this was an interesting platform to run on.

To Whom It May Concern: I am Conrad Powell, Attorney-at-Law, running as the NDM candidate for MP in South East St. Elizabeth. My main platform is the legalization of ganja, creation of factories to produce by-products from ganja, and the creation of hemp factories in South East St. Elizabeth. I have received strong support from many farmers in the area. Research indicates that there is a large market for medical marijuana as well as pharmaceutical products made from ganja. Furthermore, there is a large market for industrial hemp used in rope materials and car production. Please contact me for an interview. My contact information is as follows: Cell- 416-2919 Office- 929-1991
