record breaking sales in a very hot market for cannabis CBD. We have a new administration things are going to pick up very, very rapidly. That said for minority communities, both canvas CBD business owners and consumers. The opportunities are more limited and this is very, very capital intensive industry. And so that has been um, an area of concern of states open up legalization. Um, up until the first they started to legalize a history of disproportionate criminal charges, um, and even evil drugs to stigma was unfairly directed minority communities. And even today With more than 30 states legalize or decriminalize weed. This unfairness has followed minorities. And so either minorities working in cannabis or allies, people that want to support minorities working in cannabis, get this issue and have taken steps to establish so called social equity from day one. many new states are coming on. I've actually talked to some of them, they're very concerned about making sure they look at this issue as they legalize in their state. So we're gonna talk to Carlos Villa today cannabis accountant who has experienced actually helping cannabis owners apply for social equity licenses. He's gonna talk about several things. And so why don't we just dive right in? Um, it looks like you have an amazing career at a Big Four and publicly traded companies, which I think is going to be huge experience as we go towards legalization. We're gonna have much more sec public filing type of work as well.
