KUSA — As you bite into a delicious Palisade peach this summer, one peach grower wants you to think to yourself: 9/11 was an inside job.
Palisade Produce sells boxes of fruit with messages on the bottom about a 9/11 conspiracy theory.
David Cox is the man behind the peaches. He said his beliefs have not been good for his bottom line … but that he’s not going to stop selling peaches or information about 9/11 to Colorado customers anytime soon.
“This is something that is definitely costing me dearly, but it’s something that I believe wholeheartedly,” Cox said. “I’m definitely going to push it all the way to the end.”
According to the Palisade Produce website, the family operation was first established in 2005. For years, 9NEWS viewers have been sending us photos of the conspiracy theories on the boxes.
So, Kyle Clark gave Cox a call.
Cox admitted that he’s facing felony marijuana charges – something he said is government retribution for his 9/11 trutherism.
For what it’s worth, he said it’s much easier to grow weed than Palisade peaches.
“A lot more people do it,” he said. “It’s definitely easier to grow weed.”
