Minorities in Cannabis
Since the beginning of prohibition and even before minority communities have been discriminated against and disproportionately arrested and affected by the war on drugs. Today as the stigma is fading away and the legal cannabis industry is booming in many places across the United States the many men and women throughout the minority community that have helped pave the path to where cannabis is today are starting to be recognized for their advocacy.
