We understand that with this rapidly growing industry many New Yorkers are eager to pursue a career in the cannabis industry. Due to the lack of resources to get started or the fear of participating because of the impact of cannabis prohibition in communities of color, many are unable to seize the opportunities that are currently available in the industry.

To help prepare community members for a career in the industry, we will host a workshop to provide insight and explore the job opportunities available throughout the cannabis industry, from seed to sale. We will also offer community support resources to help guide New Yorkers on their path to Cannabis Career, Advocacy, Business, or even for consumers or patients who would like to be more informed.

Attendees will have access to the following:

Cannabis Industry & Cannabis Career Training Presentation by CWI

The legislation legalizing cannabis in New York was a game changer, ending the war on drugs that led to generations of mass incarceration and closed off economic opportunities to communities across the state. It also launched a new legal industry that will create a lot of jobs. In this workshop, you’ll learn about the job opportunities available throughout the cannabis industry, from seed to sale.


Joe's Barbershop

A landmark business and space in Harlem, Joe’s Barbershop opened in 1964. During the era of desegregation era, Joe’s had a secret cannabis-friendly speakeasy through the bathroom during the 1960s and 1970s. Black celebrities, Black athletes, and the Harlem community would come together in the safe space of the hidden Precise One’s Club behind Joe’s. With cannabis legalization, the family has brought back Joe’s as a cannabis-friendly event and community space with cannabis and Black history in their walls for generations.
