The wisdom and expertise of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous people are foundational to cannabis culture, yet they have been and continue to be disproportionately policed and punished for their participation in and contributions to it. Melanated communities bear the deepest scars of the misguided war on drugs.
We can’t undo the past, but we must work diligently to ensure a fair and equitable future. As of December 2020, The Floret Coalition currently consists of 135 members who collectively donate just over $10,000 per month. These numbers grow slightly each month as membership increases.
Participation is not only a way to give back. It is also an opportunity for us to listen and learn from Black, Latinx, and Indigenous leaders while we come together to cultivate a mutually supportive network of cannabis-related businesses committed to anti-racist action.
