June 2021 Cannabis Events: Pride Edition

June 2021 Cannabis Events: Pride Edition

Published on 6/1/21

It's finally June 2021, and there's so much in store for you to do! We know that June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month because of the Stonewall Riots of the 60s, but did you know that cannabis and LGBTQ+ Pride have their own connection, too? Considered one of the pioneers of medical cannabis, Dennis Peron was a queer man who paved the way for the world we live in today, along with other LGBTQ+ activists. We're also celebrating Juneteenth, which marks the anniversary of the emancipation of slaves in the United States. With cannabis being used as a tool to imprison Black Americans, it's incredibly important that we stand in solidarity. In honor of all of these celebrations, check out our list of June events!

2nd Annual Uplift Cannabis Diversity Symposium: June 12, 2021 (Virtual)

Uplift National Cannabis Diversity Symposium

The Uplift Cannabis Diversity Symposium was created in 2019 to help professionals and entrepreneurs transfer current skills and knowledge into the cannabis industry, no matter their race, age, background or gender. By bringing minority-owned brands and businesses together, this symposium allows consumers, advocates and entrepreneurs to learn from and network with industry professionals. While the cannabis industry has struggled with inclusion, this event should motivate and empower all to be more inclusive. Tickets to the 2nd Annual Uplift Cannabis Diversity Symposium start at $40.
