Jeannette Ward formerly of a few Fortune 500 companies, now of the Minority Cannabis Business Association joins us for a frank and candid conversation. After discussing personal and professional fulfillment through work, we discuss personal dealings with race and religion which leads to a discussion on how the War on Drugs set the stage for the MCBA's mission of providing equal access in cannabis. Our second MCBA Spotlight Episode.
We first spoke with the Drug Policy Alliance head of marijuana reform and cat enthusiast Amanda Reiman, in Episode 49. Amanda returns to share what's happening with cannabis regulations in California. While a tremendous amount of work has been done, there's still more to do to cross the finish line. If this is your introduction, you should know that Amanda's PhD dissertation, "Cannabis Care," was the first study focusing on how medical marijuana dispensaries operate as health service providers.
