Rev. Al Sharpton Calls For More Diversity In White-Dominated Weed Industry

Lilly Workneh | 06/13/2017

Rev. Al Sharpton says he does not personally consume marijuana, but that’s not stopping him from calling for more black representation in the white-dominated weed industry.

Sharpton, a prominent civil rights leader and founder of the National Action Network, will be the keynote speaker at the Cannabis World Congress Business Exposition in New York on Friday. The event will mark the first time Sharpton will speak publicly about the decriminalization of marijuana use and call for an increase in diversity and better inclusion of people of color within the industry.
