Industrialization, Commercialization of “Millennial Marijuana”
 
Industrialization, Commercialization of “Millennial Marijuana”
Written By David E. Smith   |   05.14.19

Abu Edwards, National Director for Smart Approaches to Marijuana, has an impassioned message for Illinois legislators who are pursuing a headlong rush to legalize weed – slow down, or better yet, stop altogether!

Based on personal experience, Edwards describes the devastating impact legalization will have on the already disadvantaged African American community. Additionally, he explains how legalization of millennial marijuana, Edwards’ term for today’s high potency weed, is just a politically correct cover for commercialization and industrialization of a product that specifically targets a market that already struggles with addiction issues.
