Meet the Rabbi
Rabbi Dr. Baruch HaLevi, OCG Director of Corporate Responsibility, is an accomplished rabbi in addition to being a “cannapreneur.” He is a pioneer in bringing ethics and social responsibility to the cannabis industry and responsible for all aspects of the ONE Cannabis SEED Venture.
Justice and Empowerment
The nascent cannabis industry is emerging as one of the most economically advantageous industries in the country- but not for everybody. African-Americans, Hispanics and other minority groups aren’t properly represented within the industry. This is especially egregious considering people of color have been disproportionately targeted by the War on Drugs and racially biased laws. Our venture addresses these injustices and inequities by providing a viable, sustainable pathway for S.E.E.D. applicants to enter the industry. We’re also committed to stimulating economic development within financially depressed communities and reinvesting profits into community betterment and health projects.
