How Prop 207 helps minority communities; Adam Trenk, Rose Law Group partner and cannabis department director, comments to 3TV

By Elliot Polakoff | AZFamily

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – It’s been one week since Arizonans were allowed to sell and buy marijuana for recreational use. And demand is still high thanks to Prop 207, which voters approved. Seventy-three dispensaries are approved to sell, and even with so much success, many impacts of the proposition have yet to be seen.

One of those is social equity licenses, designed to allow communities negatively impacted by previous marijuana legislation in Arizona a chance to buy and sell marijuana recreationally.

“Owning a dispensary could really set my family, friends, and their family up for a long time,” says 36-year old Phoenix resident TJ Gaucin. He and his wife Tish have lost jobs due to marijuana possession. But thanks to the social equity ownership program, he has the potential to live a different future.


“To have these new businesses pop up, and I think there’s certainly going to be a demand for their product,” says Rose Law Group Director Of Cannabis Law Adam Trenk. “I think it’s a great thing.”
