Community Outreach - Development of Cannabis Equity Program
The primary purpose of this Cannabis Equity Assessment (“Equity Assessment”) is to identify communities that have been disproportionally impacted by enforcement of cannabis-related laws and crimes within the City of Richmond. The analysis provided in this assessment is data-informed and analyzes the history and current conditions of illegalization of cannabis in the City, including poverty and Richmond Police Department data. It reviews known characteristics of the City’s existing cannabis industry and discusses barriers to entry into the industry. Finally, the Equity Assessment provides recommendations to assist decision-makers in developing and implementing the City's cannabis equity program.
