    I feel you, but Blacks weren't meant to start or be successful in businesses of any kind. So it's not really surprising they're not going super hard for marijuana businesses. We're highly under represented in everything from or education success to our careers. Not very many of us even want to own a business let alone actually fathom it or bring it to fruition. But it's like I tell my cousins when they say there's no jobs for them, to make their own. They complain about all the smoke shops being owned by middle eastern people but they don't even consider opening their own smoke shop. Or consider that if more black people did this more black customers would go to black owned businesses and start their own businesses and the middle eastern a won't have customers. They don't see this or that it's pretty cheap to do and when you have a family and none of you guys have jobs it makes sense to start up yourselves. But everything's easier said than done and some people just don't have the mindset to get it done.

    Where pot is legal, more black people still go to jail for marijuana


    While some advocates of the drug policy reform movement have made it their lifelong mission to convince the population that legalizing the leaf is the only way to end the racial disparity that exists in relation to marijuana-related arrests, a recent study shows that legalization has no bearing on the racial imbalance African-Americans are still getting busted more than whites for marijuana in states that have made it legal ...

    Same as it ever was...gold rush who got rich?...oil rush who got rich?...back then land was just taken by white folk...nowadays they are doing it by the book they wrote...if u have a record from drugs u r not included...even of u make it past that hurdle u can be singled out and busted by the feds and lose all of ur inventory....truthfully speaking it still remains more feasible for black folks to sell herb illegally...no taxes and if ur smart and have a set client base there is a low chance of getting caught in the shadows....

    One love

    Why Whoopi Goldberg's Weed Business Matters

    Actress Whoopi Goldberg's decision to enter the medicinal marijuana business could end up impacting much more than her bottom line.


    The Oscar winner and current co-host of "The View" announced Wednesday that she was partnering with Om Edibles founder Maya Elisabeth to roll out a series of new marijuana-infused products including a balm, a tincture, a bath soak and sipping chocolate, aimed at women suffering from menstrual cramps. The Whoopi & Maya brand will be available to consumers in California who are legally licensed to purchase medical marijuana products. MSNBC reached out Elisabeth and Goldberg for comment on their new venture but has not heard back at this time.

    While Goldberg is not the first celebrity to lend their name to a cannabis product - legendary stoner comedian Tommy Chong has his own line of legal weed paraphernalia, for instance - she is the the most mainstream name to date, who isn't necessarily associated with drug culture, to take the plunge. Her decision to lend her name to these products is also significant because so few people of color have been able to puncture the sellers market in this burgeoning industry.

    The most controversial marijuana champion in the nation’s capital is a fugitive named Kushgod


    The man who calls himself Kushgod is conflicted.

    Normally, he wants all the attention he can get. In big, bold letters, he has plastered KUSH GODS on what police describe as his “fleet of Kush Gods vehicles.” He named his daughter Freedom Kushgod. He juggles two phones and a bevy of social media profiles featuring “Kush Godesses” striking languid poses on a Kush Gods Mercedes. Media requests are usually accepted on one condition: Cameras must be present ...

    Video: What Colorado has learned from legalizing marijuana so far



    ... Since becoming the first state to legalize recreational marijuana, in 2014, ER visits related to pot use have increased by nearly 30 percent in Colorado, the study found. From 2014 to mid-2015, 956 out of every 100,000 ER visits (roughly one out of every 1,000) were related to marijuana use, compared to 739 per 100,000 from 2010 through 2013 ...
