Q&A with Entrepreneur & Marley Natural
What do you think are the biggest misconceptions cannabis industry?
We are fortunate to be living during a promising time of rapid change, especially with regard to cannabis, how people understand it, the evolution of the laws that govern it, and the development of mainstream brands. Our brand has deep respect for nature’s nourishing benefits and we believe cannabis should be consumed responsibly as a way to connect, reflect, recharge, and inspire oneself.
How is your business innovating?
In the spirit of giving back, both to Jamaica and to communities that have been harmed by cannabis prohibition, Marley Natural has created Rise Up, a social impact initiative. Rise Up funds a series of carefully curated projects around the world that reflect our vision for an inclusive and compassionate community where people take care of each other and the environment. The projects we fund are committed to environmental sustainability, positive social change, and helping communities that have been harmed by the social injustices of cannabis prohibition. In the U.S., our Rise Up program has helped expunge 100 records.
