This cannabis entrepreneur wants a piece of that $4.1 billion market

Meet Reena Rampersad. I met Reena at her friend's vape shop in Hamilton. She runs the High Society Supper Club where she makes micro-dosed dishes for private dinners (technically she's still waiting for the Canadian government to figure out some things so she can officially be licensed). As a Trinidadian-Canadian, she has a lot of things to say about our cannabis industry, like how it excludes marginalized communities even though they've helped build the demand in the first place. She also strongly believes in expunging those who have been convicted of simple possession of marijuana (you know, since it's legal now). You can read all about her entrepreneurism and activism here, for LiisBeth magazine.
