Re: “Will Oakland's Legal Weed Industry Leave People of Color Behind?

Impressive article. Impressive organizing by Supernova and others. There should be no barriers to ownership or licensure in any business based on drug priors. That goes for medical marijuana, adult use marijuana should it become legal, general contracting or accounting, etc. California and the nation has permanently disenfranchised people for selling a small amount of a commodity that another adult wanted. It's wrong and it's racist.
