‘Grow More’ public listening events not so public
By Alex Stuckey
JEFFERSON CITY • Missourians who spot a 200-foot-long blimp over their city may wonder about the hashtag “#GrowMo” splashed on its side.
If not for the “Create a Great State” slogan penned above it, onlookers might think it’s an advertisement for Grow More, which advocates for legalizing marijuana in Missouri – and shares the same hashtag.
But it’s not. The blimp promotes a statewide listening tour put on by Grow Missouri, a group backed by wealthy investor Rex Sinquefield. The group’s website asks people to share their ideas on how to “Create a Great State.” It also asks visitors to “come to events.”
When and where those events are held is anyone’s guess – and some of them aren’t open to the public….
Seriously, is anyone surprised?
