In this episode of 420 Somewhere, guest Brittany Parker joins us as we examine cannabis in the media. She is the founder and CEO of A Green Legacy – a cannabis marketing, PR, and sales strategy consultancy specializing in content development, media, landing public speaking engagements, lead generation, and organic marketing engagement.
Parker strategically pivoted into the cannabis industry 4 years ago through earlier careers in elementary education and later, Fortune 100 tech marketing. Her final year as a burned-out elementary teacher – changed her from an aspiring superintendent to an aspiring cannabis CEO.
Black and brown communities continue to be disproportionately targeted by cannabis prohibition. Parker envisions a cannabis industry where Black and brown people have a fair opportunity to build wealth and economic power through the same avenue used to villainize, incarcerate, and dismantle these communities for decades.
In addition to serving her clients and enjoying family time with her partner and 5-year-old, Parker enjoys supporting underrepresented cannabis entrepreneurs and professionals through her community events – covering topics like, how to find business funding, pivoting into the cannabis industry, and securing media coverage.
Parker is a freelance writer and certified medical marijuana consultant based in Washington State. She loves any opportunity to take in the Pacific North West outdoors with a side of Gelato 33.
