New Washington law will help people of color get into the marijuana industry

The state’s marijuana business is booming, but not everyone is reaping the benefits.

Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Washington, signed House Bill 1443 into law Monday, which is aimed at helping minorities get into the state’s marijuana sales and manufacturing business.

According to data provided by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, when asked to identify themselves by race, 82% of the state’s licensed marijuana business owners identified themselves as non-minority.
