8 Black-Owned Ancillary Cannabis Businesses to Support.
Winston Engineering Inc has been featured!. “This Black History Month, BIPOCANN is bringing attention to eight Black-owned cannabis businesses that offer services that support the growth of the industry.
While the contributions of BIPOC and historically racialized and underrepresented people and businesses must be celebrated year-round, Black History Month provides a space for celebration of achievements by Black people and a time for recognizing their central role in shaping history.”
Winston Engineering is one of the featured companies:
“Where They Operate: Wildomar, California, providing services across the United States and Canada
What They Do: Winston Engineering Inc is a Black-owned firm that was founded in 2015 by Anthony Winston, P.Eng. They started providing MEP Engineering construction permit plans for the cannabis industry in 2017. To date, Winston Engineering Inc has provided Mechanical (HVAC), Electric & Plumbing Engineering plans for well over 20 cannabis facilities across the United States. These facilities encompass indoor cultivation, extraction, manufacturing, retail and distribution. Winston Engineering Inc also provides solar, battery backup, generator and Fire Protection design.
What They Have to Say: “The War on Drugs has decimated the Black community and I saw it first-hand as a kid growing up. I have relatives that have been locked up for it, and it’s terrible how the Black community was used as a pawn by the government. It fractured our communities. When cannabis started becoming legal, I thought this was a great opportunity to level the playing field, especially in wealth disparities,” Anthony told BIPOCANN in an interview, “We’re now so many years into legalization and the number of Black folks in cannabis is minuscule. My mission is to educate as many Black folks on how they can overcome hurdles to entering this industry.””
