On August 26th, one of our co-founders was invited by The Black Futurist Group and CannabisNoire to speak on a panel at Atlanta City Council regarding social equity and Cannabis. Council members Antonio Brown, Matt Westmoreland, and Andre Dickens were in attendance to discuss how the city of Atlanta can develop a plan to help people of color enter the Cannabis industry as well as how to support their businesses.
The hearing began with a brief background about the Cannabis industry. Several ideas for social equity programs were introduced and all council members were interested in furthering the discussion to see how Atlanta can become a part of the solution.
We are so excited about the future of Cannabis here in Atlanta!
