Should marijuana replace avocados?

In the wake of Proposition 64 passing in California, it may be wise for Fallbrook to embrace its history with marijuana. As avocados become more difficult to grow with drought, cannabis has continued to spring up easily.

It might be very beneficial for the economy and culture of Fallbrook to embrace its roots as the once underground
marijuana capital. What are your thoughts on this?

    Oh hell no! Marijuana is still a federally illegal and is an intoxicant.

    If growing it is legal, profit will determine the crop. That is how I feel. My crystal ball doesn’t create fear out of speculation.

    For all those immediately shutting down the idea of maybe creating an new more profitable job market, shame on you! Not only would this help the economy by creating more jobs, but medically this could be the beginning of something new… “Fallbrook CBD capital of the world” has a nice ring don’t it. Imagine the thousands of smiling of patients big and small, old or young happy and glad to be getting their medicine the they so desperately need that gives them hope and a second chance at life, being thankful for there being a place in the world with an open mind that looks pass this plant as a drug and truly see it for what it is. A plant, a herb with and medicinal and truly magical/miraculous properties. It doesn’t stop there either the plant can be used for a lot more, hemp to make paper goods and other fabric/fiberous material. The possibilities are endless. But the only thing that would hold this town back is a closed mind, step out of the darkness and accept enlightenment and let’s bring friendly to our “friendly village”

    One thing that was not mentioned publicly once proposition 64 passed, was that the measure also passed/legitimized Hemp as an industrial crop. Not a lot of people read that fine print, and I sincerely think that we should start exploring our legal rights/abilitieis to utilize hemp as a replacement option. Fallbrook could pioneer the shift in the textile industry here in Southern California…

    Yes! There so many patients that use mmj in town and locally not to mention the profit it would turn. Our town could definitely use something new and mmj is booming right now. There’s still a ton of people who shame marijuana but it’s helped so many OVERCOME illness. It would be silly not to consider it.

    A good idea if you’re truly thinking about the big picture and not being close minded to canibus.

    Marijuana or hemp would be great options to help the local economy. Hemp can be used to replace plastics and save animals and the planet. Hemp can be used to make clothing, sheets, toilet paper and so on. The nutritional value of hemp is well documented for protein and other nutritional value. Most importantly CBD’s that don’t get you high have been documented to be medicinal and indeed were part of the food chain for thousands of years. It is possible that many diseases today may be in part due to a lack of CBD. We can become producers and benefit from the many uses and economical boost, or we sit around and watch everyone else get wealthy from this most useful plant

    Let your neighbors grow whatever they want. I think avocados are being replaced with vineyards like Temecula wine country. Grapes take very little water!
