The Cannabis Business and Communities of Color

It wasn’t that long ago that selling marijuana for any reason and in any amount could get you locked up.  Now, depending on where you live, not only is selling it legal, but it could be extremely profitable.  As with may big business opportunities, communities of color are often slow to catch on because of access to resources, information, funding and other obstacles.  That’s beginning to change along with attitudes about cannabis.  We’re talking about how black businesses are moving into the cannabis space.
