As a cannabis policy and business lawyer, Shaleen Title and her former college roommate Danielle Schumacher – a fellow weed activist – became go-tos for marijuana companies looking for new staff. "People would always come to us asking for help hiring, especially if they were looking for women and people of color," says Title, who also helped draft the recent Massachusetts legalization initiative. Now, as the THC Staffing Group, Title and Schumacher are helping to shape what the budding industry will look like. "I wasn't fighting any stereotypes," says Title of transitioning from law to cannabis recruiting. "I think there's a chance [in the cannabis industry] to grow and be successful based on your merit."
