Legalize Cannabis Federally to Fund Black Owned Businesses & Black-Owned Cannabis Centers
0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!
This petition was created to seek funding from the government in support of more black owned Businesses, Cannabis Cultivation, Cannabis Education, Cannabis Licensing and industrial Real Estate Ownership.
The Cannabis industry is projected to be a 146 Billion Dollar industry and African Americans are currently under represented in this industry. Wasted Time and Money
Enforcing marijuana laws costs us about $4.6 billion a year, yet the War on Marijuana has failed to diminish the use or availability of marijuana. African Americans are under represented in the Cannabis Industry while simultaneously being overly represented in Cannabis related crimes and mass incarceration percentages due to Cannabis being a federally illegal substance. Police routinely arrest millions of people just for having marijuana every year. Billions of taxpayer dollars fund these arrests, which disproportionately target Black people
4% of the cannabis Industry is currently people of color which means that 96% percent are either Caucasian or European. People of color desire a fair share at the projected 146 Billion Dollar industry. Marijuana use is roughly equal among Blacks and whites, yet Blacks are 3.73 times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession.
We need to get this petition to the Desk of the right people prior to the legalization of Cannabis. This is our opportunity to change a stigma regarding Cannabis and to right many wrongs by employing people of color into an industry that will effect the Real Estate, Food and Beverage, Tobacco, Cosmetic & the Big Pharmaceutical Industries. These are each Trillion Dollar Industries today.
SIGNING THIS PETITION WILL HELP MINORITIES TO CONTROL THIER OWN DOLLAR and create a system to give us control of our own communities.
We Deserve Our Peace & Our Piece.
