2. New Regulations Aim to Secure Social Equity in Legal Cannabis Industry
Rooted in Justice
As the legal cannabis industry continues to grow, so too does the need for regulations that ensure social equity are established. To this end, new regulations are being implemented to ensure that access to, and ownership of the cannabis industry is just and equitable.
These regulations are an integral part to the process of reforming the outdated cannabis system and promoting justice. Examples of the regulations include:
- Marijuana licensing programs that prioritize awarding of licenses and access to capital to those who are disproportionately harmed by the past criminalization of cannabis.
- Relaxed criteria for applicants to the cannabis industry, such as waivers for those with past cannabis-related convictions, and the elimination of costly and time-consuming background checks.
- Support for organizations that work to empower individuals from historically disenfranchised communities to pursue cannabis-related careers.
Clearly, this is only the beginning in terms of creating a more just landscape within the legal cannabis industry, however it is an important step towards creating an equitable and accessible environment. Doing so helps ensure that access to the industry no longer lies exclusive with once privileged groups, but is open and available to all.
