Inequities of Legalized Marijuana
March 2, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The billion-dollar marijuana market should have room for every ethnic
group. But going from decriminalization to medical and recreational use
has resulted in a patchwork of dangerous inconsistencies. The
weaponization of marijuana laws against communities of color leaves
victims incarcerated or economically incapable of high non-refundable
application fees in licensing lotteries for dispensaries, growing,
transporting, and/or processing legalized marijuana. Cannabis users are
vulnerable to pesticide use by industrial growers. What is the best
science? Have we lost expertise to incarceration? These barriers are
not from the era of slavery or Jim Crow; but today.
