Social Equity in Cannabis

Within the last two decades Cannabis has gone from being illegal and only available on the black market to a highly profitable and regulated industry. For many, the booming cannabis industry has brought on the creation of jobs, tax revenues, and many other blessings. Although it has brought on many good things, it has also brought on insight for more social equality within the cannabis landscape. According to the ACLU, 8.2 million people were arrested for marijuana from 2001 to 2010. Of course, you know, our country was at a different place than it is now. Of those millions of arrests, 88% of the arrest were arrested simply for possessing, not for selling or trafficking. When you look at the statistics it show that Caucasians as well, as African Americans pretty much use or consume cannabis at the same rate, however, minorities are four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than their Caucasian counterparts. So what ends up happening is, you have that on your record, making it substantially harder to get what we would call a regular job, let alone get the capital to invest in opening a dispensary or getting into the cannabis industry.
