Sarah Silverman Speaks Up About Gender Inequality in the Cannabis Industry
Although women make up one of the fastest growing demographics in cannabis consumer statistics, the industry is still dominated by white males at the executive level. And, as The GrowthOp reports, comedian, actress, writer, and cannabis activist, Sarah Silverman, is on a mission to change that. She will make her voice heard at the Largo at Coronet event in Los Angeles tonight.
The event where Silverman will speak tonight is being held to benefit The Initiative. Silverman sits on the board of the organization, which is a business accelerator with a mission to address gender inequality and other social injustices in the cannabis industry. On bringing more women into the cannabis industry, Silverman is quoted in the article as saying, “White males should not have a monopoly on the cannabis space, and I love white males, I have many white male friends.”
