“Cannabis has a special responsibility because cannabis has a special history. American laws constructed around this product put millions of Black people in jail, denied them jobs and housing, and stripped them of their right to vote. To pretend otherwise is to perpetuate America’s 400-year crime.”
– Leafly Senior Editor Bruce Barcott

“The history and trauma of racism, beginning with slavery and subsequent practices to terrorize and marginalize Black people since, is not a memory of the past or Jim Crow but a reality still today. This dark history is exacerbated by the fact that Black Americans are disproportionately the targets of injustices, ranging from loss of jobs, economic inequality and the ever-widened racial wealth gap, to mass incarceration and excessive police force, as well as the War on Drugs and COVID-19.”
– Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH)
