WeedWeek editor Alex Halperin grabbed some time with Marijuana Policy Project Executive Director Steve Hawkins. The Amnesty International and NAACP veteran discussed what it’s like to lead at a time when cannabis is becoming a social- justice issue.
- “Every business in the country is being challenged more to think about race and structural racism,” Hawkins says. “The cannabis industry is no different. I hope we’ll see companies think about their structure and what’s possible internally.”
- Got three-and-half hours for a Zoom chat on cannabis and race? Steve Hawkins convenes some fresh faces and untied tongues to address justice in the plant’s American past, present and future.
