Reinvestment in Communities

The cannabis legalization legislation, passed in the 2019 legislative session, is the most equity-centric adult-use cannabis law in the country. As part of its social equity provisions, the legislation allocates 25% of net revenues to the Restore, Reinvest, and Renew (R3) program, which invests in communities that have the highest rates of commitments to and from the Department of Corrections, gun injuries, child poverty and unemployment. The R3 program provides funding to five areas: civil legal aid, reentry services, violence prevention, youth development, and economic development.
