As protests continue, some activists question cannabis industry’s silence
Protests continued for another day and into the evening Monday following the death of George Floyd, an African American man from Minnesota who was killed on Memorial day when police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed. Over the weekend, some demonstrators pulled the cannabis industry into the fray, damaging stores and stealing merchandise. But as industry executives focused on their losses, their silence towards the movement became more noticeable to some activists.
