4th Annual Black Cannabis Week Amplifies the Black Experience and Fosters Equity in Cannabis

Philadelphia, PA – Black Cannabis Week (BCW) returns for the 4th edition of this transformative virtual global event amplifying the Black experience in cannabis, September 17-24, 2023. BCW will culminate with the in-person free DACO Cannabis Opportunities Conference in partnership with Pennsylvania State Senator Sharif Street on September 22-23, 2023, at the prestigious Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine.

The DACO Cannabis Opportunities Conference serves as an unparalleled platform that provides educational and informational experiences including panels, engaging speakers, and legal and career support. In its 6th year, the conference remains free to attend and offers entrepreneurs, investors, job seekers, adult patients, policy makers, advocates, and the “cannabis curious” a chance to gain priceless insight into opportunities in the industry, network and develop solutions for making cannabis more equitable.

“Black Cannabis Week has grown exponentially over the past years, driven by our commitment to genuine access and opportunities for all. As a driving force in the cannabis industry, our mission with BCW and the DACO Cannabis Opportunities Conference is to amplify Black voices and create an inclusive space for wellness, innovation, and restorative justice,” shares Cherron Perry-Thomas, Co-Founder and Director of Social Impact at The Diasporic Alliance for Cannabis Opportunities (DACO).
