Why Black History Month Is Important For The Cannabis Industry

Beyond Black History Month

Let’s not forget that black history does not start and end with the month of February, black history is American history.

Black History is Cannabis History!

With recreational cannabis becoming legal in many states across the nation, the conversation has finally turned toward addressing the systematic cannabis related injustices that have plagued the black community. As we light up freely in our neighborhoods, we can’t forget all the black and brown bodies still sitting in jail. According to the ACLU, black folks are 3.73 times more likely to be arrested for a marijuana-related offense, even though they are using it at the same rate as white people.

Cities such as, Los Angeles, Oakland, and Sacramento are programs that include no-interest loans, technical assistance, business incubation, and allocating half of new cannabis business permits to equity businesses.

As we work together to build the cannabis industry, we should make sure to prioritize support programs and inclusion for people of color. Economic parity is a meaningful step towards social justice for future generations. The manner in which we accept how this country has treated and continues to treat, people of color and cannabis is crucial.
