ELEVATE NE Discusses Stigma + Jobs on iHeartMedia's Blunt Talk Podcast

May 25, 2018

"You're a drug dealer now???"

 

As a cannabis industry professional or advocate, you've no doubt been met with ignorance regarding what kinds of jobs could possibly exist for you -- nevermind your motivation for pursuing one of your own. Whether you're actually touching the plant, or creating a product for using the plant, or providing a service as an ancillary business, you know that stigma is a &!*#@.

 

That's why ELEVATE was honored to be invited by iHeartMedia to talk on the Blunt Talk podcast about the stigma surrounding cannabis, how education can help end it, and how to get a job working in cannabis. Two of our cofounders, TaShonda Vincent-Lee and Beth Waterfall, shared their personal stories about how they got their first work in the industry and emphasized the importance of education as a means for job creation.

 

Blunt Talk host Brit Smith also provides an excellent overview of key historical facts relating to prohibition. Click here or the logo below to listen, and please share!
