Black History Month- Minnesota Canna Queens

With February being Black History Month, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite BLACK WOMEN in the Minnesota Cannabis scene (or Cannabis by way of Minnesota). This month, and more often than not, let’s BUY WEED (and products) FROM BLACK WOMEN, too.

Women are the original healers, and African women have used plants and herbs as medicine for decades, including canna. In 2017, Lesotho became the first African country to legalize cultivation of cannabis for medical and scientific purposes. Since then, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Malawi, eSwatini, Zambia, Uganda (shoutout Grace!), and Rwanda have all follow suit.

The United States (Minnesota included, heavily) has a real bad history of using African Americans as negative “examples” when it comes to showing cannabis use- as Minnesotans, especially, we should all be reminded of tragic cases such as Philando Castile who lost his life by lethal use of force by out of fear due to “a smell of marijuana,” as we continue to celebrate and explore the new state of “Legalized” Cannabis.

With that, let’s celebrate and support these CANNA QUEENS this month, in or from the 10k Lakes.
