Episode 309 – The Cannabis Industry Cannot Be Silent

A hand-hand sign is held aloft during a protest reading the names of black people recently killed by police. 20 names are listed with each followed by the word 'couldn't'.

First time guests Amber Littlejohn and Gail Rand join host Shanita Penny to talk about the relaxation of rules in Washington State around cannabis industry workers bringing their children to work during pandemic shutdowns, the historic and ongoing silence by the cannabis industry on the issue of race and racism, and the new initiative ‘Inside Insight‘, which helps connect women entrepreneurs with more experienced women working within the industry who offer help and coaching. Produced by Shea Gunther.
