3 Black Women in Cannabis to Follow on Instagram
Many industries in America remain dominated by cis white men and cannabis is no exception. We’d like to give a shout out these Black women in cannabis creating positive communities for women of color who love weed.
The media often overlooks minority-owned businesses in favor of mega-brands owned by largely white investment firms. And in advertising, white faces are predominant despite Black, Latino, and Caucasian communities using cannabis around the same percentage. Unfairly targeted by the failed war on drugs, Black citizens are disproportionately arrested by law enforcement for cannabis crimes.
Black women face additional barriers to success in legal cannabis, so let’s show them love and help them grow!
