WHAT IS CANNACRAWL?

Canna crawl is a culture driven grass roots marketplace event that places an emphasis on diversity, equity and inclusion. This is very important considering that the price of legalization was paid by mostly racialize and marginalized communities. Although diversity in representation is steadily growing in the legal industry there’s still much room for improvement.  Canna Crawl is committed to preserving, showcasing and celebrating the spirit and culture of the legacy industry. Canna Crawl now welcomes both legacy and licensed brands, established experienced and new experienced brands to create a vibrant and varied offering for our attendees. Canna crawl is a Black owned event and has been running since July 2018.
