Economic Development and Inclusion Panel Discussions 


“The Black Experience in Cannabis” is the first and only international representation of people of color' narratives in cannabis at the Congressional Black Caucus. Our consistent mission is to educate and impact federal legislators, state and local elected officials, industry leaders, subject-matter experts and citizen activists of the global Black, Brown and indigenous  community on pertinent topics related to the blossoming cannabis industry. Understanding the undeniable global shift in medical research, agriculture, and investment in the regulated cannabis industry is the key to expanding the United States’ competitiveness in the world’s economy. We are educational leaders in the global cannabis industry that provide opportunities for the communities of color to reinvest in our future, live healthier lives, optimize on our innate entrepreneurism spirit, and build generational wealth for current and future generations.
