The City of Portland has released a statement welcoming Dasheeda Dawson, a board member of Doctors for Cannabis Regulation, as Cannabis Program Supervisor.
Please join us in welcoming Dasheeda Dawson in her new role as Cannabis Program Supervisor. She has 15+ years of business development, strategic management, and brand marketing experience. More recently, she has worked as an industry educator, senior executive leader, and strategy expert for multiple cannabis businesses, municipalities, and media outlets across the country.
In the coming months, Ms. Dawson will invite you to a conversation about her new role and specifically address the regulatory and licensing aspects of the Cannabis Program. Considering our nation’s current conversations about systemic racism and policing brutality, Ms. Dawson wanted to introduce herself as well as provide a statement on cannabis’ historical role in suppressing the rights of Black, brown and indigenous communities.
