American citizens has witnessed a recent alarming legistlative trend that effectivly inplies that the US govermnment suddenly has the power to ban anything from the private market it determines "can be harmful if misused"
If this were true, (and constitutionally, it's not), then the government is no longer one of limited and enumerated powers and has unprecedented control over how we citizens live their lives.
NAHITA has identified the following states which have collectively chosen to invest in the blackmarket. These broad prohibitive bills and laws have effectively destroyed the right for herbal incence manufactures and retailers to creat jobs and taxable revenue in their states, and are preventing consumers from exercising freedom of choice in the private market.
An Injuction is a court order prohibiting a party from a specific course of action. As NAHITA prepares injunctive lawsuit action against these states, we encourage all who value their basic freedom of choice to take action in the form of contacting these state's officials and letting them know that you oppose the following bills. NAHITA also offers open assistance and advocacy representation to any members taking legal action on their own.
