BIPOCANN’s mission is to “increase BIPOC visibility to advance representation and economic growth in the legal cannabis industry of the Americas.” 

BIPOC populations are under-represented in the corporate and profit centers of the multibillion-dollar cannabis industry, but continue to be the people most arrested, convicted, and incarcerated for cannabis-related crimes. 

The emerging Virginia cannabis market presents a new, unique, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for historically marginalized communities to build economic wealth through entrepreneurship and business ownership. 

Let’s change the narrative, together.
