African-American Owned Cannabis Companies To Get Portland Awards

(Portland, OR)  --  The city of Portland is awarding two grants to African-American owned cannabis businesses.  The city's economic development agency, Prosper Portland, says the move is an effort to level the playing field and help bridge a "racially divided capital gap."  Green Box, which is a subscription based marijuana delivery service, will receive 30-thousand dollars in grants.  Green Hop, which is a retailer with an apprenticeship program for young African Americans, will get the same amount.
