How will the law promote social equity?

Read time: 6 minutes

The law takes a comprehensive approach to promoting social equity, focused on the neighborhoods most impacted by the War on Drugs. It provides for expungement of past cannabis-related crimes and reserves half of all cannabis business licenses for people from impacted neighborhoods. In addition, more than half of the revenue from cannabis sales will be dedicated to a new equity fund which will be invested in those neighborhoods.
