As more states legalize the use of recreational marijuana, the number of opportunities for business owners is increasing as well.

One industry that is seeing a positive impact after the legalization of cannabis is the travel and tourism industry.

Reports show that in some states where weed is legal, tourism increased by nearly 50 percent.

Even with the legalization of marijuana, only one percent of the dispensaries in the United States are owned by blacks.

Whether it’s recreational or medical, here are five black-owned dispensaries to visit during your next visit to California.

iCann Berkeley

Sue Taylor, a former Catholic School Principal, opened iCANN Berkeley in 2018 to educate people, mainly seniors, on holistic resources as an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs.


There are three levels of service provided to customers, including express checkout, counter service, and private consultation.
