Marijuana exec puts up Illinois tornado victims at hotel
    #786093 - 07/20/15 02:53 PM (1 year, 4 months ago)



people who lost their homes when a tornado roared through their central Illinois town last week received help from a new neighbor: the top executive of a medical marijuana-growing company.

Delavan Mayor Liz Skinner said Sunday that Revolution Enterprises CEO Tim McGraw is paying for hotel rooms for residents displaced by Thursday night's tornado.

More than 50 homes were damaged as the tornado, which reached wind speeds of 120 mph, tore a 1-mile path through the community of 1,700 residents. "Nine homes were declared uninhabitable," Skinner said.
No one was killed in the twister, which also took down trees, garages and grave markers at a cemetery. The National Weather Service rated its strength as EF2, a significant tornado on a scale that goes from EF0 to EF5.

Families ousted by the tornado are appreciative of McGraw's offer of rooms at a hotel in nearby Pekin.

"The alternative was cots set up at the American Legion Hall by Red Cross," Skinner said.

She said residents are determined to help each other with the cleanup. "There's a sense of normalcy with coming back to church on Sunday," she said.

The marijuana company's 75,000-square-foot facility in Delavan escaped damage, said company spokesman Bradley Vallerius. The tornado hit soon after the company started growing cannabis under lights inside its locked, environment-controlled facility.

Revolution Enterprises announced in a news release Friday that it expects to harvest and process medical marijuana as early as October.

The first medical marijuana company in Illinois to start growing was Ataraxia, which said July 13 that it had started cultivating marijuana at its facility in the southeastern Illinois city of Albion

"Ohhhh look how kind and compassionate the cannabis industry is..."

It's just a publicity stunt. Cannabis doesn't need CEOs, this guy can fuck off.

I don't understand why the cynicism is necessary, the man lives in the community this happened to, helped out his community and neighbors, spent money out of pocket he was never required to, and your response is fuck him he just wants his company's name out there?

At least 50 families are thankfully in a much needed state of relative comfort amidst their tragedy of losing their house and likely most of their belongings and the aspect you concern yourself with is that it was a single doner with enough business success to AFFORD being able to do such a thing vs it being an average joe who started a fundraiser. Incredible.

J'ai besoin de me trouver une histoire à me conter

at least its a positive publicity stunt.

Theres others who do stupid shit for the whole any publicity is good publicity but at least this guy is helping people.

Budweiser stopped beer production for a few days and was canning water recently to give out to flood victims. Sure that was prolly a stunt but im sure the people who lost their homes were greatful.

Same with this hotel dude.
