Original Request for Employment by the Hemp Division
Originally written on August 7, 2019 this was my plea for Hemp in Alaska and my employment with the state in the capacity of Advocate for and Administration of the new Hemp Industry. No response to date has been received from the Governor's office except his choice to fund the industry and his continued open public support of Oil production being Alaska's future economy. I beg to disagree Governor Dunleavy. Hemp is Alaska's Future.
Please Hire Me State of Alaska Hemp Division
Today I wrote a prophetic document. I wrote a Cover Letter for a position that does not yet exist and as of this moment has not received confirmed funding from the Governor of Alaska. But I walk in faith so I presented my idea to Governor Michael Dunleavy, Plant Materials Center Manager Robert Carter and all Representatives and Senators in the state of Alaska. I'm asking for a job with the State of Alaska in the Hemp Division. Here is what I said:
Greetings Honorable Governor Dunleavy, Esteemed Legislators and Plant Materials Center Manager, Robert Carter,
It is with a great honor and much foresight that I submit my qualifications for a position with the Division of Agriculture serving the Hemp Division for the State of Alaska. As many of you know I am passionate about serving and supporting a successful Hemp Industry for Alaska. For the past 5 years of my life I have actively advocated for cannabis and hemp in Alaska and specifically have moved my focus to Hemp over the past year.
Through this advocacy of Hemp for Healthcare I have organized and executed successful fundraising luncheons to discuss my idea and share with attendees about the laws that legalized Hemp for our state. I have executed successful social media campaigns that educated my 15,000 and growing social media presence about Hemp Facts with foresight that I am attracting investors and pioneers to invest in the Hemp Industries of Alaska. I have self started every day through illness, mental and physical disabilities, homelessness and extreme poverty to continue to advocate for the success of the Hemp Industry in Alaska.
I am committed to serving the people of Alaska and a Greener Future for our State for all the days of my life. Economic diversification is my motivating factor coupled with faith that this industry can provide a tax revenue source across all the variety of products that can be made from automobiles to fuel, plastics to building materials, and food to clothing not to mention the medicinal benefits of Hemp oils. This tax revenue source can pay for Healthcare facilities that will truly heal our humans with a whole human approach that includes mind, body and soul medicine.
Jobs, Jobs, and More Jobs
Hemp will create jobs for Alaska. More than we can even fathom at this time but let me give you some examples. A vertically integrated hemp business needs laborers to raise plants, to transplant, water, cut clones, and manicure the weak and lower growth. You'll need processors to harvest, hang, dry and trim the plants. You will need workers to collect and process bio mass stalks or plant material. Then you will need extractors who are knowledgeable in cannabis oil extraction and familiar with closed loop extraction or crude Simpson oil extraction. We will need workers experienced in using distillate equipment and to package products, make CBD tinctures, cook gummies. Then people to market and sell in either running brick and mortar stores or websites then workers to box and ship the products out to customers. That’s just for making CBD oils or gummies but think about the possibilities when you make plastics, hemp fuel, hempcrete or something I deeply desire of Hemp made vehicles.
I seek to attract Elon Musk and a Tesla plant to Alaska to make Hemp vehicles that run on Hemp fuel and provide thousands of Alaskans with manufacturing jobs.
But Wait There’s More Jobs
Not only will we find jobs in the actual Hemp Sector but we will find jobs in construction, security, training companies, transportation companies, and infrastructure building as the economy improves and cities are built and growth is experienced for our state. The ancillary support businesses will flourish as well as we’ve seen happen in the Alaskan Cannabis Industry.
Diversified Economy and Tax Revenue for Healthcare
The first phase in my Hemp for Healthcare plan is the E-Commerce website which will begin as a global marketplace for Hemp products of all categories from building materials and plastic to food and even skateboard wheels. This website will attract global citizens to purchase hemp products from. The orders will be drop shipped to the suppliers and profits will remain in Alaska to fund the building of Facilities of Healing and the Hemp program. As Alaska’s Hemp industry comes online then the products will be traded out for Alaskan grown and made products to be shipped globally. Again profits staying in the state to fund local businesses but also to fund Healthcare facilities and overhead costs to run the program.
As the industry comes online we also will need to call a Constitutional Convention and adapt Article 9 Section 7 of the Constitution to allow funds to be dedicated to specific needs. I believe wholeheartedly that if we levied a state sales tax of 2%, giving Alaskan residents a chance to opt out in each transaction due to poverty reasons, and promised to the residents that tax revenue generated would go towards education that we would have a much more supportive population in crowd funding their government.
Additionally, taxing the Hemp Industry at 20% of the wholesale price of biomass would provide a tax revenue source that can be directed towards Healthcare. I suggest a 5% tax break for facilities that dedicate at least 10% of their grow to fruits and vegetables for local communities, thus providing more food security for our state. It also has been suggested that tax is kept at 10% for the first 5 years of each business to support more cash flow to improve business operations and support success.
Please Hire Me
