Podcaster Tre’Von Dorsey spotlights minority cannabis entrepreneurs and resources to empower people of color to create their own cannabis ownership journey

Online PR News – 28-February-2020 – Washington, D.C. - February 27, 2020 – ANTI is a pro-cannabis podcast whose misnomer title stands for Accepted Narcotics Through Introspect, but when shortened, leads audiences to believe that the startup supports anti-cannabis sentiment when in fact, it is just the opposite. Founder Tre’Von Dorsey launched ANTI to attract industry proponents and opponents alike, to effectively expand its mission, which is to highlight, educate and destigmatize Black and brown consumers, employees and entrepreneurs across the industry.

The ANTI podcast aims to not only entertain but also to inform its audience while elevating the voices of those most negatively affected by the use, criminalization and stigmatization of the cannabis plant. The stories shared via the ANTI platform are heartwarming tales of inspiration told by mothers of children with debilitating medical conditions who’ve found relief and a better quality of life with cannabis; health care practitioners who share how cannabis positively affectuates change in their lives and industries; and industry founders and pioneers who share stories of how they overcame various obstacles to change the lives of their friends and families with cannabis entrepreneurship and ownership.

“ANTI quenches a deep thirst in the market as minority ownership steadily increases year over year, partners are reaching out from all over the world since launching our first episode in 2019,” says Dorsey. “We look forward to producing more relevant, entertaining content and to working with our industry peers to curate unique events, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities, empowering the culture to take ownership of their own niche in the industry.”

In 2020, Dorsey is focused on launching a related web application dedicated exclusively to helping minorities launch Cannabis startups, co-organizing Pitch. Invest. Grow! a pitch & partnership event which connects minority-owned startups to minority-focused investors & influencers and launching the second season of the ANTI podcast, which will empower audiences with historical accounts of the Cannabis journey as it passed from African ancestors to today’s generation, empowering listeners with insight and imparting a sense of true purpose and entitlement to the various uses and benefits of the plant before, during and after the forced migration of Africans to the Americas via slavery.
