The 2018 NBA season officially starts tonight as Philadelphia kicks off the season on the road in Boston‼️. 75% of the #NBA is made up of Black Players so as the topic of #CannabisLegalization continues to #Grow and Legalization rapidly transitions into normalization globally... we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the state of being Black In Cannabis in all 30 cities that host NBA teams via our #NgageBlacksAgain (NBA) line.

Nobody keeps official statistics on race and cannabis business ownership. But based on more than 150 interviews with dispensary owners, industry insiders, and salespeople who interact with a lot of pot shops, it appears that fewer than three dozen of the 3,200 to 3,600 storefront marijuana dispensaries in the United States are owned by black people—about 1%.
