Maryland’s medical cannabis industry is slowly expanding. And, at least from my standpoint, things are looking pretty damn dope for Black people around here.

Keisha Reed, the founder of Madame Green Grow, is also CEO of Maryland’s very fresh ecosystem The Maryland Cannabis Community Partnership.

Their tagline is Explore Maryland Cannabis—which serves as the website URL and Instagram tag so that you can keep up.
We’ve explored Keisha’s story before, so be sure to read up about her on the Cash Color Cannabis website. Her weed tastes probably hasn’t changed: she goes weak in the knees for diesel-heavy strains and typically shoots for anything limonene heavy.
