Now is the time to support Black-owned dispensaries in Los Angeles, especially as interest in the industry continues to climb. In fact, the industry is on track to be worth an estimated $70.6 billion globally by 2028 as more states legalize it.

Yet, Black people are not getting a fair shot. A 2017 report from Marijuana Business Daily shows that a little more than 4 percent of marijuana business owners identify as Black compared to the more than 80 percent of white owners.

While there are many organizations working to create an equitable cannabis industry in major cities like Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Portland, we can also help change that narrative.

Here are 9 Black-owned dispensaries In Los Angeles to support.
