The biggest threat to farmers is not an act of nature. It is the cumulative burden of increased taxes and regulations.

No one person can face such obstacles alone. F.A.R.M.S. Inc. provides the support to weather the storm.

Legislators respond best to the people they represent. Any legislator will tell you he or she would rather hear from a constituent than anyone else. Members of the Oregon State Legislature depend on F.A.R.M.S. Inc. members like you to tell them how proposed legislation or regulations will affect the cannabis industry, your district and especially your business.
