Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Marcus has held higher standards since day one.
His passion for the cannabis industry started when he made the move to California to pursue his love for the industry. He began working as a trimmer at a dispensary in Los Angeles and from there, honed his talents by learning how to grow and learning more about the cannabis industry and the recreational market. When moving back to D.C. he focused on indoor growing and started a delivery service. His over 12 years of experience in the cannabis industry led to eventually opening RELVA in December 2020 during the pandemic.
It’s worth noting that this is an incredible feat, as Black cannabis entrepreneurs account for less than 2% of the nation’s marijuana businesses.
Your support not only means the world to us, but it also helps strengthen the case for more government support of Black-owned cannabis companies to reverse the devastating toll of the war on drugs and mass incarceration on minority communities.
