Download the exclusive Vangst white paper today

The cannabis industry and LGBTQ+ community have a unique historical relationship. The compassionate care movement of the 1980s and 1990s paved the way for the multibillion-dollar industry we know today.

Today, LGBTQIA+ representation within the cannabis industry is double that of the general U.S. population, and is leaps and bounds above traditional corporate America, according to Vangst data. With that strength of diversity comes great responsibility when it comes to workplace culture and benefits.
