“Oakland, California, has a cannabis-focused equity program that requires that at least half of issued licenses for legal marijuana businesses go to individuals who have been convicted of a marijuana-related offense in the city, have an income level below 80% of the city’s average or have been a resident for 10 of the past 20 years in an area of Oakland that has a high rate of marijuana-related arrests.
“Amber Senter of @supernovawomen
— a three-year-old Bay Area firm that runs business, education and civic engagement workshops focused on cannabis, including to help people with felony convictions break into the industry — along with her co-founders Nina Parks, Tsion ‘Sunshine’ Lencho and Andrea Unsworth, helped Oakland implement its equity program.”
