After noticing that the cannabis industry was incredibly white, three black women decided to do something about it by creating their own business.

Additionally, the company aims "to facilitate fair representation of minority cannabis consumers," its site states. Only less than 1 percent of U. Additionally, black people are nearly four times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than whites, according to a report by the American Civil Liberties Union ACLU. Despite the disproportionate amount of arrests among black people and white people, marijuana use is roughly equal among blacks and whites, the report found.

What's your opinion on this article? W hile some consider marijuana, or weed, a natural healer or even a gift from God linked to religious practices, the plant has in some ways also been the bane of Black existence. There are literally hundreds of thousands of people—of the more than two million people incarcerated in America—locked up on some kind of weed charge. According to research from the Drug Policy Alliance, in , , people were arrested for a marijuana law violation. Of that number , people, or 91 percent, were arrested for possession of marijuana. All told, of the number of people arrested for drug law violations, 47 percent of them were either Black or Latino. Still, these figures have not quelled the daily ritual of Black people smoking weed and getting high. Now, as legalization initiatives are being passed from state to state, springing forth a brand new economic industry that is no longer underground and at the forefront of society, the relationship between Black people and weed seems to have gotten deeper, but there are some troubling aspects of this relationship. Some view the burgeoning marijuana industry as a modern day gold rush because there is now the ability to actually sell weed and not be arrested for it.

A new reason to swing by your neighborhood dispensary? Amanda, a Boston-based healthcare professional, has been experimenting with marijuana on and off for six years. Becky Lynn, who sees women with problems ranging from low libido to painful sex to difficulty with orgasm as director of the Center for Sexual Health at Saint Louis University, first noticed this trend among patients a couple years ago. Enlisting the help of her fellow practitioners in a university practice that treats women for all kinds of reasons, Lynn surveyed female patients. I wondered: What is it about marijuana that is helping women, in particular, enjoy sex more? Rebecca Craft, a professor of psychology at Washington State University who researches the effects of drugs on behavior, may have the answer. In one study, Craft found that female rodents experienced about a 25 percent increase in sensitivity to the pain-relieving effects of THC the active ingredient in cannabis during ovulation, when their estrogen levels were rising.
