The growth of legal cannabis has come with complications related to prior prohibition of cannabis that disproportionately and adversely impacted people in communities of color. In an attempt to counter this history of disparity, many states, cities and businesses have implemented social equity programs connected to the legalization of medical or recreational cannabis. This panel will discuss some of the social issues that have risen to the surface during the transition into a legal market and highlight various solutions that emerged.
