The Cannabis Industry Should Not Be Whitewashed


It dishonors all the people of color who have been jailed for drug offenses

To celebrate 4/20, we're taking a look at what needs to change to make the cannabis industry more diverse and inclusive. We chatted with Mary Pryor, the founder of Cannaclusive, and Aaliyah Ei, a cannabis activist, about how to make sure that the whitewashing of the industry gets called out. Pryor talks about why she profiles Black and women-owned cannabis companies, and how we can make the industry more inclusive; and Ei tells us why, even though cannabis is legal in California, the culture lacks diversity and a feeling of community.
