Annamaria Enenajor & Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty discussed in Policy Options magazine

Anthony Morgan examines Black Canadians position in the Cannabis debate in “Some economic and reparative progress has been made, but cannabis justice is not possible until policing stops unfairly targeting Black Canadians” in Policy Options magazine. Morgan states, “[t]he most important shift for Black Canadians impacted by cannabis legalization might just be the meteoric rise of the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty (CCA), which got going a few months before legalization and was pivotal to getting the passage of Bill C-93, an Act to provide no-cost, expedited record suspensions for simple possession of cannabis, which came into effect in August 2019. Led by its gifted and tenacious director, a young Black lawyer named Annamaria Enenajor, the campaign garnered nation-wide support from the public, politicians and leading cannabis corporations including Aurora, DOJA and HEXO.” (November 26, 2019)
