Minorities for Medical Marijuana’s CEO and Founder Roz McCarthy spoke to the skepticism people of color have towards the cannabis industry at the CWCBExpo in New York City

A cannabis industry dominated by women? That would be revolutionary, says Women Grow’s Chanda Macias.

Corporate culture is dominating the cannabis space these days, and of the many down-level effects that shift is placing on the industry, none can be felt more than the decline of women. As Marijuana Business Daily reported a few years back, in just two short years, from 2015 to 2017 the number of women in the industry fell from 36 percent to 27 percent.
