At the Forefront with Dr. Deb

Social and Economic Equity in the Evolving Marijuana Landscape

Episode Summary

Isiah Oliver leads a conversation with Flint leaders Phil Schultz, Keysa Smith, and Debra Furr-Holden on how to ensure social and economic equity with a new marijuana dispensary planning to open in Downtown Flint in 2021. How do we ensue that those impacted by marijuana laws are able to benefit from recent changes in marijuana policy? How do we ensure Black and Brown communities have a seat at the table? The model we create in Flint has the potential to be a model for other cities because equity matters and must at the forefront of the conversation.
