Being as I am a Cannabis farmer and registered with the State I received this Census in the mail. I will fill it out to the best of my knowledge and accuracy. I skip all the way to section 9 filling in Crop type being Fresh cut herbs(Cannabis) code 0503 showing square feet to be about 78sq ft. Then Value of Sales for 2012 were $68,569. Every section up to section 25 is filled with no box checked showing production expenses. next in section 28 market value of equipment is about $2500. Section 32 is practices hitting yes on letterc, h, and i. Section 33 Direct sales for human consumption, yes box showing $68,569 and specify products put Fresh Cut Herbs( Cannabis) code 0503. Section 35 answer operator Characteristics. Section 36 type of organization.

Very easy to fill out. What better way for them to find out what can be done then with a Census.

Cannabis Farmer first to fill out 2012 Census?

Knowing I had questions about the Census. I was ready to call and Kerry not really sure if I should call to ask questions. Again I STAND UP AND OUT FRONT to call and ask our Government questions about a form which I will report my Cannabis on. My Question was if Cannabis should be under code; 0503 Other Vegetables and fresh cut herbs??? I called their toll free number and met a very nice and helpful lady. She was surprised of my question and said I was the first to call and ask this question and she wanted to make sure it was correct too.

Hearing this really makes me believe that I maybe the first Cannabis Farmer to actually fill out the United States 2012 Census of Agriculture. I would love to see if there was any others.

I find out that alot cannot afford to take the chance to do something like this but I am already LABELED by this government and will take chances to help ALL OPPRESSED CANNABIS USERS.

Take care and FIGHT ON

Online Census

I waited to the last minute on this paperwork wondering if should send in and being told by Kerry not to. Sometimes I get scared on what I am doing and especially when it is Federal papers(done federal tax returns last year and will also this year). But it says it has to be filled out by law by 2-4-2013. So I filled out the paperwork and got questions answered while calling them. Then went online to do Census on 2-3-2013. Missed Half-time for Super Bowl. Online you were able to just type in what you were farming and didnt need code. First section for this I put Cannabis by itself but second section I put Cannabis then code 0503 for Vegetables and Fresh Cut Herbs. Wonder if should have put that at both? So now they know what a 75 sq ft nursery can do. be it cost or production.
I am trying to educate and really believe if more filled the census out they could get a better understanding.
NC approved a Commision to study the many beneficial industrial uses of industrial hemp, including the use of industrial hemp oil as an alternative fuel and the use of industrial hemp fiber in construction and paper products. The Commission shall examine the economic opportunities industruial hemp provides to the State and consider the desirability and feasibility of authorizing industrial hemp cultivation and production as a farm product in North Carolina. https://www.brmcrc.org/content/nc-study-beneficial-uses-industrial-hemp
YET NC NEVER FOLLOWED IT THROUGH. This just shows when a bill is even approved and possible benefits could be there that they will still just throw their moral judgements in instead.
When they dont want to help that is where you have to show them yourselves!!!!!!!

Take care and FIGHT ON
