About the event
"Get Lifted" is the interactive experience featuring representatives of the New York State Cannabis Control Board and drafters of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act that aims to bring together a cross section of small business owners, individuals convicted of a marijuana related offense, and the faith-based community to discuss and educate our community on how to participate in the various opportunities that Big Cannabis has to offer our communities in terms of economic development.
The National Urban League endorses the marijuana legalization effort to lift constraints that have criminalized Black and Brown people disproportionately and to lift barriers that have blocked opportunity and social parity for our community. The impact of marijuana enforcement has caused generational harms that must be addressed nationally and locally, and members of the community who have been harmed by disproportionate treatment should receive priority treatment from the legalized marketplace.
