Black Women Breaking Barriers in the Marijuana Cultivation Business
Mitchell is the very first Black woman to be approved for a cultivation license in the City of Sacramento. She is originally from Arkansas and has been a resident of Sacramento since 1985. THE HUB initially linked up with Mitchell 2 years ago at meetings that were taking place for the Sacramento Kids First Coalition meetings and she had noted that she was starting a cannabis business then but could not talk about it too much or go on public record about it. Mitchell has definitely been a pioneer in establishing a marijuana cultivation business, where she talks to us about the process with providing some golden steps of DOs and DONTs in the application process, what to expect, along with shedding crucial insight on her challenging journey to open her cannabis business.
