EmeraldLIVE Educational Series - Social Equity
Social Equity in the Cannabis Industry. People of color, particularly Black people, have been disproportionately targeted by law enforcement for possessing, consuming, or selling cannabis and are being shut out of the industry. This has led to increasingly loud calls for more social equity within the cannabis industry. But what does that actually mean? The definition of social equity can vary, depending on the context, but generally boils down to justice and fairness in public policy. When it comes to the cannabis industry, social equity focuses on the inclusion of communities of color in every aspect, from cultivation to consulting. We'll discuss some of the actionable steps already established in cannabis companies and what you can do to make your business more equitable to BlPOC and LGBTQIA communities. Panelists: Angela White, Equity for Industry Program Manager, Success Centers Marie Montmarquet, Co-founder, MD Numbers, Inc. Adolph Ward, Delivery Service and Operator of Zipp Delivery Moderator: Mary Carreon, Associate Editor, Merry Jane
IS IT FAIR TO WANT MORE FROM THE MORE ACT? - THE HIGH GROUND W/ MARIE MONTMARQUET OF MD NUMBERS INC.
Ep. 47 - Is it Fair to Want More From the MORE Act? Election day brought five new states with cannabis legislation, and in the week since, Democrats have promised to vote on the MORE act, which would quote remove cannabis as a scheduled substance, as well as offer banking protections for the industry. And while some of that is worth getting excited about, the devil of course is in the details. In this case, the details are pretty slim language about systems for expunging cannabis convictions, but no details about how that expensive process will actually be handled financially. A vague mention of a process by which people currently serving time for cannabis convictions could appeal their convictions, even though in California, a state that legalized years ago, there are still people sitting in jail for something that is no longer a crime. Marie Montmarquet is a co-founder and managing partner of the MD Numbers Family of Brands, a vertically integrated cannabis business in California. She's watched a small businesses have been overtaken by large corporate style players to the point that she fears it's no longer possible potentially for someone like her to even get into the industry. Jesse Betend talked to her shortly after election day about all of this, as well as two recent controversies with both Illinois and California’s social equity programs that both mirror each other, and might mean quite a lot for the future of cannabis regulation from the MORE act onward.
