Social Equity in Cannabis Matters

Social Equity in Cannabis Matters

Walking the talk in cannabis social equity isn’t an easy task. Everyone involved in cannabis has an opinion about what social equity means and what needs to be done to right the wrongs done by cannabis prohibition and overzealous policing. As we see it, social equity acknowledges that systemic inequalities exist in our industry and community. A successful social equity plan and program works to eliminate the inequities and ensures that everyone has access to opportunities and positive outcomes.

LGBTQ Pride Month and Cannabis

LGBTQ Pride Month and Cannabis

You’ve probably noticed that we proudly fly a Pride flag from the front porch of Pharmhouse Wellness, and for us, it’s more than an expression of support for the LGBTQ community. It’s our way of saying thanks to the queer community for what it has done for us.

We believe cannabis social equity is more than a plan or a checkbox—for us it is a deeply held company value.

So, can cannabis provisioning centers benefit your community?

Yes! Here’s how: like anything else in life, cannabis is taxed. The better a provisioning center does, the more tax revenue the state and local community will see. Medical cannabis is taxed at Michigan’s standard 6%, while recreational cannabis is taxed an extra 10% on top of the standard 6% tax rate. This money goes to improving schools, roads, and other various things that benefit from tax dollars.
