RACIAL EQUITY IN WA MARIJUANA INDUSTRY COMES TO FOREFRONT AFTER SESSIONS PUSH

This week’s decision by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to make it easier for prosecutors to use federal laws to crack down on states that have legalized pot is opening up a conversation about racial equity in the marijuana industry.

“The Jeff Sessions decision only goes after the rich and privileged it has no effect on the already affected communities because we’re not involved,” said Aaron Bossett, a consultant in the cannabis industry.

Bossett was a speaker at the Cannabis Alliance Washington State Cannabis Summit Friday. He was also one of the only people of color at the conference.
