Can Social Equity Help Heal The War On Drugs?

Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

As cannabis legalization sweeps the nation, some states are creating a framework for racial equality to help heal those communities most impacted by the failed war on drugs. But are those programs enough to help minorities succeed in the booming cannabis industry? This powerful panel will explore at how these programs work in real-life, and what else must be done to support minority success in cannabis businesses.
