Corey Rogan and Raheem Giddens share their stories as applicants of Los Angeles’s Social Equity program for cannabis retail. From dealing with shady investors to attempting to submit their application on a malfunctioning portal, their stories are just a few of the many that reflect the current status of LA’s social equity program. Community leaders, Kika Keith and Madison Shockley, join the documentary to explain the intricacies of predatory investors, a glitch-filled submission portal, and a massive coverup by the city of Los Angeles.
