Cannabis has an amazing history of bringing people together and of elevating wellness throughout history. As we find ourselves at our current point in time it can be a wonderful force for healing and for creating a better world. Supporting those who do good in the world, and also those who give back to their communities makes good business and good sense.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” So said Mahatma Gandhi many years ago. By any measure we have a huge distance to travel along this road before we can claim some serious progress in this regard. There are however many people & groups who are doing all they can to improve the lot of the animals we share this world with. Directing the power of your cannabis purchases to groups doing this wonderful work is a wonderful way to show your support for this cause and to boost likeminded businesses.
On behalf of all current and future occupants of this shared earth of ours we have a shared responsibility to do the best we can for the environment. From those who throw litter in the street and pollute our waterways to the large industrial scale polluters, we all need to do better. Nobody wants their own home to be a garbage dump and our shared home is the world. Small things make a difference. Causes supported by cannabis businesses include a wide selection of projects and groups dedicated to improving the environment.
Generations of mostly black & brown people have suffered immensely as the “war on drugs” ravaged communities and sent droves of young men and women to prison for the “crime” of using or perhaps selling some cannabis. As the world wakes up to this madness and cannabis takes its rightful place as a wonderful herb the business of cannabis is often shutting out these same people who were disproportionally targeted over the years. As a newly legalizing industry supporting minority owned businesses along with women owned businesses and original growers and small farmers is a great way to use the power of cannabis to right some historical wrongs.
