The BIPOCANN mission is to increase BIPOC visibility to advance representation and economic growth in legal cannabis industry of the Americas. BIPOC populations are under-represented in the corporate and profit centers of the billion dollar industry, yet continue be the communities most arrested, convicted, and incarcerated for cannabis possession and use.
