While some think celebrities have a leg up on other cannabis brands, singer Melissa Etheridge, who launched Etheridge Botanicals in 2020, says it's not so easy. "We don't sell anymore than anyone else," she tells CelebStoner. "We're still in the dark."

Etheridge primarily blames this on Canadian companies "who starting buying all the American companies" after legalization happened there in 2017. "It's been tough for a boutique brand like ours."

In a blog post on Tuesday, Amazon HR boss Beth Galetti wrote that he “regained employment status” for former employees and applicants who were dismissed or postponed during random or pre-employment marijuana screening. “Pre-employment marijuana testing has disproportionately affected the color community by stagnating employment and thus economic growth. We believe this unfair treatment is unacceptable.” Mr Galetti said.
