Who we are?
We are a Black founded cannabis brand that was in the cannabis market operating under Prop 215 in California prior to Prop 64. On January 1, 2018 Prop 64 went into effect in California making marijuana legal for recreational use. For consumers this was a bittersweet day that meant less regulation for buying cannabis, but would later bring high taxes and lower quality product cloaked in fancy packaging when bought at licensed dispensaries. But most people don’t know is that marijuana had been medically legal since 1996 in California under Prop 215. Prop 64, though glorified by some, has had a very detrimental effect on minorities trying to operate legally under it. The exuberant fees charged for applications, leases, inspections, monthly, quarterly and yearly taxes along with stringent policies and codes has only let the big corporations jump into the market and thrive while the people who were most effected by the racist war on drugs fall by the way side.
Why are we doing this?
At Weedies, we believe that not only does diversity matter in the cannabis industry, but the experience of the enthusiasts matters too. So, we strive to make a domestic and international impact and pave the way for fan driven products. We believe that brand creators, artist and fans should be able to connect directly without all the bureaucratic, monopolistic, pay to play bullshit, to put it *bluntly.* With blockchain technology we believe there’s a new way for fans to engage directly with the company they like and want to buy from and be a part of the creation process at the same time. These NFT collectibles, is our hopeful science experiment to see who wants to joint the revolution?
