Public Workshop on Social Equity and Commercial Cannabis

Public Workshop on Social Equity and Commercial Cannabis

The War on Drugs has disproportionately affected some communities more than others. It is now our responsibility to ensure that those communities are engaged in the development and implementation of city’s commercial cannabis policies and regulations. I was proud to join Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Executive Director of Los Angeles’ Department of Cannabis Regulation Cat Packer and community members for a workshop on how social equity will play a role in shaping this new industry. Thank you to all who came out and shared their thoughts with us- your voices are essential to this process.
