Why Buy From Latinx-Owned Businesses in Cannabis?

The decades-long War on Drugs has always been a war on BIPOC communities. Even with social justice initiatives, legal cannabis still favors white-owned businesses. Business Insider found that white men make up 70% of top executives at the top 14 cannabis companies. Not hard to believe, right? But we don’t want to keep it that way. Despite the hardships that Latinx entrepreneurs have faced for years, things are beginning to turn as the world opens up to cannabis. To help you become more intentional with the companies you support, we’ve created this guide to Latinx-owned businesses in cannabis. This is an evergreen resource you can depend on to make conscious purchases that support POC.
