Our 3 Core Focuses
CEIC Welcomes You
According to recent statistics provided by the District Attorney’s office, the numbers are staggering, and continue to rise. As of 2019, of the recorded 1009 possession offenses, 803 belonged to minorities who identify as African American/Black or Latino. This is disproportionate of other youths, which often leads less opportunities and an increase in repeated offenses.
The specific language we will address will convey the notion that no minor under the age of 21 will be detained and sent to the juvenile detention center for a first-time cannabis offense. We will request the first offense only incurs mandatory community service and substance use rehabilitation hours. This will provide an opportunity to bridge the education gap and bring forth programs that will help increase knowledge of the use of cannabis in youth.

( Nevada Cannabis Community Reinvestment Fund)
Helping The Community
The NCCRFund is designed to provide potentially short-term and long-term funding to organizations in the community with programmatic models addressing: mental health, legal services for pre-legalization cannabis related charges and other community-based support services, public education, community outreach ad grant distribution to support designated community organizations who focus on cannabis education and providing services related to the industry such as skills training and job placement. Outreach will focus on communities in Nevada that have been disproportionately affected by the previous federal and state drug policies.
The importance of Community Equity and Inclusion Coalition or Cannabis Equity and Inclusion Coalition is to establish a community of advocates for equality and inclusion. Our current focus is the Cannabis Market Place in Nevada where the number of Black & Brown owned licenses is less than 1%.
