The Marijuana Industry is Growing but is it an inclusive industry?

The Marijuana Industry is Growing but is it an inclusive industry?

by Ebonique Ellis

When I started my campaign in Brooklyn, New York, I’ve attracted a wide array of supporters from older retired teachers to Russian-American immigrants. One of my favorite supporters was a young gentleman who made his living dealing marijuana. He was young, ambitious, thoughtful man who wanted a better life for his family. He talked about not having enough food at home and he thought this was the best option to provide for himself.

Who is protecting this young man and supporting him as marijuana is legalized? Is he getting push into this new economy or being pushed out. Black Enterprise discusses the issue further in “Why is MD shutting black entrepreneurs out of its marijuana industry?”
