Oct 13, 2019 | Length: 0h 31m

This week, Alex and Donny talk to Liz Jackson-Simpson, the Chief Executive Officer of Success Centers, and her colleague Angela White, Success Centers’ Equity for Industry Program Manager. Success Centers is a San Francisco Bay Area-based nonprofit, originally founded over three decades ago by judges to help provide opportunities to youth in the juvenile justice system, and has since expanded to empower marginalized communities in the Bay Area — including through job training in the cannabis sector. We also discuss the niche sector of military veterans providing security for cannabis cash, featured in Los Angeles magazine.
