The Color of Cannabis was founded out of the urgent need to have more representation of minorities in the industry. Advocating openly, unapologetically, and responsibly for people of color to participate in the regulated market is work that cannot be neglected. The regulated cannabis industry presents an opportunity for minorities to build generational wealth and the community must be educated on the opportunities. The Color of Cannabis will increase the number of minorities working in the cannabis industry. Creating an industry that has more leaders and people in power that are POCs. Bridging the gap of business diversity, ownership and partnerships that allows social equity in the cannabis industry to repair and restore communities and people negatively impacted by the war on drugs.
