Killer Mike Writes Op-Ed On Getting African Americans Into the Marijuana Industry

Michael ‘Killer Mike’ Render just got real as hell and penned an Op-Ed for Rolling Stones about the involvement of African American men in the marijuana industry and how lawmakers are making it impossible for these men to enter the very profitable industry. With marijuana being recently legalized, Render recited an article from BuzzFeed about how only one percent of marijuana dispensaries in the country are black-owned. Mike writes, “The current movement to legalize marijuana offers a small but important opportunity to dismantle these inequalities, and yet the people most likely to be victims of marijuana prohibition are the least likely to profit in its aftermath.” You can read the rest of his piece here.
