Cannabis prohibition has a storied history of being weaponized to destroy and alienate communities. Now that cannabis consumption is becoming more mainstream and attractive due to its revenue generating capacity,we see powerful companies and policy makers scrambling to exclude those same communities from the growing industry.Come chat with Chelsea (Marijuana Justice) Kwesi (Chappin Consulting), and Brittny (ProCannaPAC) about the twisted and insidious implications that inequitable industry and policies will have for our communities. We will tackle the history of Cannabis Prohibition, the strategic weaponization of cannabis to strip Black and Brown people of their agency and political power, and how we can use our narrative power to reclaim the narratives being told about cannabis.
