THE BIG IDEA

Happy holidays everyone,

At WeedWeek we’ve always believed the cannabis industry owes a debt to the Black and brown communities who bore and continue to endure the worst of the war on drugs. We’re also proud to be a 1% pledge partner of the Cannabis Impact Fund. Like other participating companies we’ve pledged 1% of our equity, shares or sales to the group, which distributes it to 5 national non-profits: The Bail Project, Black Futures LabColor for Change, Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM) and The Hood Incubator

Soon we’ll have a space for the other participating companies on the site. But for now, I’ll list them here. As your organization considers ESG initiatives, I hope you’ll give the Cannabis Impact Fund a look:

Founding Members

Flow Cannabis Company, Whole Grow, Terrapin Care Station

Pledge Partners

Cannabis Trainers, Irie Wedding & Events, WeedWeek, Changemaker Creative, Pen and Hemp, Clio Cannabis Awards, Dogwood Botanicals, BIPOCANN, AlphaRoot, National Association of Cannabis Businesses (NACB)

I wish all of you a happy, healthy and restful holiday season and new year. Look out for a (hopefully brief) newsletter next Tuesday, December 28. We’ll be back to our regular schedule the first week of 2022.

Enjoy the newsletter,

Alex

TEN BIGGEST STORIES OF 2021

No matter how much happens in canna-land it can seem like nothing ever changes. Federal illegality remains in place. Most businesses still lack access to the banking system. 

Even so, the industry’s progress is unmistakable. This year saw a new set of states markets begin to flourish, as an even bigger cohort makes preparations to open in the northeast. It’s never clean or easy, but all the arrows still point in the same direction: eventual federal reform.

With that in mind, here are the 10 biggest stories of 2021, and the ones that will continue to matter next year.

Event staff serving Cannabistry brand Tough Mama Yolo Shotz flavored sorbet to guests at the December 7 Bada Bing! party in Palm Springs, Calif.

Each two ounce shot(z?) contains 100 mg of THC. This product — #onlythebrave — seems destined to get someone in trouble. Don’t let it be you.

To quote the web site:

For those who dare – the fearless few – they are rewarded with the feeling of being wrapped in Tough Mama’s hairy arms!

But, if you’re looking for someone to hold your hand, wipe your butt, and listen to you whine about your problems, you’ve come to the wrong mama.
