Celebrating Juneteenth – Juneteenth Story: Celebrating Black Excellence in the Cannabis Community

First celebrated 157 years ago in Galveston, TX, today is a special day in African American history and American history as a whole. This year, we celebrate the day as a federal holiday, as President Biden signed into law in 2021. On the 157th anniversary of Juneteenth, I wanted to come out with an episode that highlighted the intersection between Cannabis and Black history. 

Juneteenth signifies the end of slavery and serves as a reminder to bring awareness to Black stories to infinitely advance racial equality. Year-round, no matter your skin tone, be sure to share black voices, support black-owned businesses, share black creators, and increase your consumption of media from black directors, artists, and creators.  This upcoming Juneteenth, we all need to take the time to acknowledge our Nation’s past mistakes and celebrate the progress we have made collectively.

In this episode, I covered a lot of different topics, so if you want to look more into anything I talked about today, some of the following links may be good jumping-off points:
