Oh, 4/20. Dare we say a marijuana holy day. The sky will be filled with cannabis clouds as masses gather far and wide; from every walk of life to partake in every form of medicine imaginable. Legalization continues to sweep the country. For many cannabis consumers, the biggest concern on 4/20 is hitting the dispensary before the line gets too long.
But the legacy of 4/20 goes beyond suburban white kids getting high in public. Cannabis culture in its purest form is a rebellion and a protest. Prohibition hasn’t ended. Black and brown people still do not have justice from the War on Drugs.
Cannabis lovers, we still need to be disrupting oppressive systems. Bring your favorite form of our beloved plant and join Kelly Perez and Courtney Mathis co-founders of Cannabis Doing Good for a walk through cannabis history and a call to action for our future.
In this chat, you’ll learn:
The social and political factors that birthed 4/20
Why racial justice is the center of every cannabis cause
How you can carry on the revolutionary spirit of the cannabis legacy.
