Women in Cannabis

A weekly podcast to help you, the budding entrepreneur, profit and grow in New York’s marijuana industry.

Hosted by Shaina St. John, a certified pharmacy technician in New York’s Medical Marijuana Program and advocate of breaking the grass ceiling for women in corporate cannabis. The War on Drugs has impacted too many families, taken away too many of our husbands and sons and left many black and brown communities broken and in poverty. Finally, the decriminalization of marijuana in New York offers Women in Cannabis an opportunity for us to claim reparations, rebuild our families and create generational wealth.
