Black Women Are Changing The Cannabis Industry For The Better — Here Are The Ones On Our Radar

- By

Mary Pryor, Co-founder of Cannaclusive

As shared in our feature of Pryor in Madame Noire’s Creative Class series, the Detriot-born, Los Angles and New York-based entrepreneur “offers professional opportunities to people of color in the legal cannabis industry” through her brand Cannaclusive. Started in 2017, the brand also provides a diverse range of realistic stock photos of people of color partaking in cannabis (ie. toking, vaping, rolling) since images like that can often hard to find. With a dedication to advocacy and educating others about the industry, Pryor, Tonya Rapley, and Charlese Antoinette (her co-founders that are also Black women) shared with VICE a few years ago that the creation of Cannaclusive was about forming “spaces and things for people like us – educated, driven women of color who enjoy the healing benefits of cannabis.”
