Cannabis Social Equity Task Force – In 2020, Washington lawmakers created a Cannabis Social Equity Task Force, with the goal of better listening to and responding to residents who feel they’ve been negatively impacted by cannabis laws. The group was tasked to “make recommendations to promote business ownership among individuals who have been disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs, in order to remedy the harms resulting from the enforcement of cannabis-related laws.” Its 21 members include legislators, state employees, advocacy groups and members of the cannabis industry. Its overall goal is to “center the voices of black, indigenous and people of color communities that have been most impacted by enforcement of cannabis-related laws.” Source: The Spokesman-Review
