In this episode of “REVOLT BLACK NEWS,” Eboni K. Williams tackles the different avenues of weed. Black people are disproportionately convicted and sentenced to prison for drug related offenses as compared to their white counterparts. So, we must learn more about the industry to make it work for us and become the bosses in it that we wish to be without legal consequence.

Cannabis chef and co-owner of The Original Cannabis Café Andrea Drummer joins for a dish demonstration. Angela Yee interviews Michele Harrington of Viola, a cannabis company that creates and sells products, about sexual wellness and the health effects of the substance. Eboni and Shanita Penny also break down the monetization and investment opportunities in the industry. Selena Hill delivers this week’s headlines, and Gia Peppers gives all the Black Excellence Entertainment Headlines.

Inspired by Sean “Diddy” Combs’ successful “State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus” town hall, “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” is a platform that is designed to report news from the perspective of Black people for Black people.

“When I started REVOLT, I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, from our lens, from our people, so I decided to launch ‘REVOLT BLACK NEWS.’” said Combs. “We’re here with solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is what we can do.”
