There is no better time than now to address the issue when it comes Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion in Cannabis. “Let’s break that phrase down: equity, inclusion and diversity, because these are 3 separate things. The equity part means equal. Equal means I want folks to be able to have equal ownership. There is nothing like being able to own your piece of land or your own business. The inclusion part is all about workforce development and career exploration. If you look around, from the ancillary side to touching the plant [African Americans] are very low in regard to the percentage of the workforce within the cannabis space. The last piece is the diversity part. Diversity is an over-arching theme. We believe that diversity has to be a part of these organizations in the [cannabis] industry from the top to the bottom, and not just talking about it but really walking the walk.” Roz McCarthy, interview in EstroHaze
