Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber is pivoting to cannabis after successful stints as a media personality and the founder of multiple other companies.
This time its personal for Barber, however, as he sees his role as an executive at cannabis investment firm Grove Group Management as symbolic of the potential the marijuana industry has to lift African Americans who were incarcerated for the increasingly decriminalized substance.
"I think we all are aware of the, the drug policies of the 70s in the 80s that caused mass
