Jim Jones Wins W/ New York Decision To Legalize Cannabis

Hip-hop and cannabis entrepreneurs like JAY-Z, Lil Wayne and Jim Jones scored a huge victory when New York state lawmakers reached an agreement to legalize recreational marijuana. JAY-Z has his cannabis brand MONOGRAM, Lil Wayne has GKUA, and Jim Jones has partnered with Saucey. Previously blocked out of selling legally in New York, their businesses will be free to expand.

Legalizing Cannabis Impacts Black + Latino Communities

New York’s monumental move is good for business, but it’s deeper than that. Black and Latino communities in New York have been subject to racially biased policing when it comes to marijuana, with Black and Latino people being arrested and jailed at a much higher rate compared to weed users in White communities.

The deal also includes equity programs aimed at increasing opportunities for minorities to enter the cannabis industry.

“A percentage of revenue that is raised will get invested into the communities where the people who suffered mass incarceration come from and still live in many cases,” said Assemblywoman Crystal D. Peoples-Stokes, a Democrat who has spearheaded the legalization effort in the lower chamber for years. “For me this is a lot more than about raising revenue: It’s about investing in the lives of the people that have been damaged.” (New York Times)
