Core Empowerment: Social Justice Cannabis Museum
Core is pleased to be operating in a state which has recognized through legislation the disproportionate impacts of the drug war on certain minority communities. We embrace the opportunity to educate the public on the complex history associated with prohibition and our Social Justice Museum will recognize and memorialize that struggle.
To curate our museum exhibits and information, Core has formed a Curating Council made up of NY Times bestsellers, Harvard professors and legendary activists. Engage with our exhibits to experience the perspective and expertise of thought leaders in the areas of social justice and awareness in the emerging cannabis industry.
Enter this replica Jail Cell to experience an immersive audio-visual exhibit highlighting the realities of the US policy of incarceration for cannabis possession and distribution. See and feel local and national examples of real individuals whose lives were derailed by the cycle of incarceration and drug offenses. Our first story is that of Jawara Tosh, whose sister Niambe Tosh is a member of our museum’s distinguished Curating Council. They are the youngest children of international reggae icon Peter Tosh and are local to the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston.
