An Expansion to Bernie Sanders Plan
The purpose of my expansion is to define and expand on the economic controls which provide advantages to small producers and startup funding for everyone regardless of income or criminal record.

Summary

This proposal seeks to both limit the big agriculture businesses while assisting smaller businesses. In addition, the National Cannabis Database shall provide DNA and terpene related to specific plants. This will both aide in the further progression of growing better crops and delivering better medicine at a cheaper rate and also provide a more diverse market for the smaller businesses to participate in.
