A More Equitable Industry

“Anyone who is profiting from the legal business has a responsibility to those folks who were not able to profit from it and whose lives were deeply impacted and to the communities that were impacted,” Danielle Drummond, VP of Social Equity at Ascend, told MG. “It’s a responsibility that I think we acknowledge as a company and want to make sure that we are fulfilling to the highest degree, and really making sure that we’re taking our lead from the community and listening to what it is that they would like us to focus on.”

Drummond added that it is crucial for cannabis businesses to leverage their power and resources to help open doors for communities most impacted by the war on drugs and make the industry more equitable.

Ascend is more than just a job provider for returning citizens. They actively participate in programs and initiatives supporting cannabis expungement, mental health and case management, and food assistance on a consistent basis. By partnering with organizations dedicated to expungements and working with the returning citizen community, Ascend not only hosts expungement clinics but also creates a pathway for interested individuals to join the cannabis industry.
