On this week’s Green Rush, we are sitting down with Jelani Gibson, the Content lead at the NJ Cannabis Insider for NJ Advance Media, which is also home to NJ.com and the Star Ledger.
Having previously covered gun violence and other social equity issues at his previous stops in Kansas City and Texas, Jelani is well-versed on the intersection of public policy and social justice. We sat down with him to look at how issues around social justice and policing have stalled efforts to pass a cannabis legalization bill in New Jersey and what the outlook of that market looks like for both consumers and businesses after voters approved cannabis on the ballot last November.
This was a tremendously thought-provoking conversation that will provide a ton of insight into how the War on Drugs still plays a heavy role in legislation around cannabis and potential solutions to empower communities that have historically been underserved and underrepresented.
So sit back and enjoy our conversation with Jelani Gibson.
