OVERTURNING MARIJUANA CONVICTIONS: Equitizing Marijuana

Join us for a panel discussion November 2018:

OVERTURNING MARIJUANA CONVICTIONS:
Equitizing Marijuana Convictions for the Poor and People of Color

In the past, many people were arrested for minor possession and smoking marijuana. A major portion of those arrested were the poor and People of Color, particularly African Americans. Mike Schmidt, Director of the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission will share the story of the marijuana arrest history in Oregon.

Now marijuana is legalized. Senator James Manning is introducing legislation to clear the previously criminal charges from the records of all Oregonians. Also, learn what opportunities are open today in the marijuana industry and how Green Hop Cannabis, co-owner, Karanja Crews, is using his love of hip hop music and teaching to educate others for future involvement in the cannabis business.
