Juneteenth It falls on a Sunday this year, although this year our offices will be closed again on Monday, in celebration of Eid.
There is a strong connection between the Juneteenth ban and cannabis. We’ve discovered this intersection in each of the past two years:
- Juneteenth is a national holiday but the fight for equality continues
- Juneteenth and Criminal Justice Reform
We encourage our readers to celebrate the emancipation of African American slaves today, and African American culture in general. Also, to think about how far we have to go in the specific context of cannabis prohibition and social justice for black Americans.
We’ll be back tomorrow with our regular content. Enjoy the holiday!
