Obstacles of Minority Cannabis Business Owners

NCIA’s Bethany Moore is joined by new Minority Cannabis Business Association President Shanita Penny M.B.A., discussing the obstacles minorities face as a result of the failed “war on drugs.”



They talk about the racial disparity in the United States specifically within the cannabis movement, as well limitations for people of color to access resources to join the cannabusiness industry, such as the high cost of license applications, fees, etc.

Shanita is a cannabis advocate, business professional, and entrepreneur with 17 years of experience helping world-class companies and startups solve complex issues and improve business performance.
