Based on inclusion, HBCUs have established cannabis programs for the Black community. 

Many HBCUs have launched programs to fight against the exclusion of Black people in the cannabis industry while preparing their students to be savvy business owners in the new and growing economy of marijuana.

Florida A&M University, Southern University, Clark Atlanta University, Tuskegee University, and North Carolina A&T State University are some of the institutions in recent years that have introduced their students to opportunities in the weed industry.
