DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ​​In a Tweet posted from his official Twitter account, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher urged President Trump to read and consider a plan created by the cannabis community for a southern border wall constructed from a hemp-based material, known as Hemp concrete. The plan also includes national cannabis legalization with a 3% federal tax that would fully fund the border wall, as well as a program to employ US Veterans in its construction.

“A HEMP-BASED CONCRETE BORDER WALL (is) a win for USA security & taxpayers, farmers, veterans & environmentalists. Bold thinking!” Rohrabacher said in his Tweet, which he directed to President Trump, as well as Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and Blackwater founder Erik Prince. He added, “See @bud_trader white paper,” pointing the President and his staff to a white paper published by a cannabis social media site BudTrader.com.

Rohrabacher’s statement comes in the wake of news that Bannon and Prince, along with other key Republican operatives, are developing plans to build a Hempcrete wall along the U.S./Mexico border, but are still seeking private funding for the project, according to POLITICO.

“According to Congressman Rohrabacher, he spoke to Steve Bannon and he is going to read the Hemp Wall white paper that BudTrader and the Cannabis/Hemp Community wrote,” says BudTrader.com CEO Brad McLaughlin, who originally proposed the hemp wall concept to Congressman Rohrabacher in April of 2018. McLaughlin’s proposal calls for federal legalization of cannabis (including for veterans and government workers) and a 3% federal tax on cannabis sales to fund the wall.

BudTrader was in the news recently for offering Free Cannabis to federal employees during the government shutdown as first reported by The Hill. In the wake of The Hill story, BudTrader CEO Brad McLaughlin has been calling for Federal Employees to have safe access to cannabis, which is currently prohibited. “Federal Employees should have safe and legal access to medical cannabis. I can’t think of one reason why they shouldn’t”.

McLaughlin formally submitted his Hemp Wall White Paper to then Congressman Dana Rohrabacher in September 2018 after a three day trip to Washington D.C. with the Congressman, where he was advocating for the Farm Bill and Cannabis Legalization on the federal level. He met members of congress and President Trump.

Former NFL Champion Marvin Washington Joins BudTrader.com As Investor And Board Member

CALIFORNIA: BudTrader.com, an online medical marijuana marketplace, has announced that former NFL defensive end and champion Marvin Washington has become an investor in the company. In addition to his investment, Washington has joined BudTrader’s Advisory Board, already consisting of former WeedMaps CTO Grant Koneke, Cannabis industry icon, Douglas Leighton, and Jim Skelton, former CEO of Ocean Pacific.

In a statement released this week, Washington had this to say: “I am excited to join the BudTrader team. I know what championship organizations look like and BudTrader is definitely a championship organization. BudTrader is not only the largest marketplace in the world for cannabis business, but also a place for the cannabis community to connect and share information. I’ve watched it grow, and I look forward to its continued growth as the cannabis space becomes a true industry.”

During his 11 seasons in the NFL, Washington played for the New York Jets, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Denver Broncos, winning a championship with the Broncos in 1998. During his time in the NFL, Washington became passionate about cannabis as an alternative to pain management methods allowed by the league. It has been alleged that the league’s doctors rely on chemical pain killers too heavily when treating injured players, causing serious health and addiction issues which, cannabis advocates like Washington say, could be avoided if the NFL were to remove its restriction on cannabis for its players. The NFL currently suspends and heavily fines players who test positive for cannabis use.

For years, Washington has been an advocate for pro football players having the choice to use medical marijuana for pain management in lieu of more addictive opioids.
