Help Save CRAFT Cannabis - Robbery!

In the early morning hours of August 6th, CRAFT Cannabis was robbed in Oakland, CA, and, sadly, they were completely wiped out. Multiple armed suspects took over $100,000 worth of inventory, causing thousands of dollars in structural damage to CRAFT’s licensed facility. CRAFT is one of the first-ever licensed cannabis delivery companies from long before adult-use cannabis legalization. They have been dedicated to the community surrounding this incredible plant for a long, long time. Now, they need our help to reopen and get their employees back to work serving the community.

And, if the robbery of a small business wasn’t enough, it gets worse:

The owners were forced to watch the destruction in real-time for over 3 hours via security cameras, as the Oakland Police Department (OPD) refused to respond to the violent incident. OPD waited for the Saturday morning sun to rise before arriving at the scene at 7:30 AM, well over 5 hours after the authorities were notified. With no official help forthcoming, a co-owner of the business drove to the scene while the crime was in progress. One of the armed perpetrators approached the co-owner's car brandishing a weapon, forcing them to immediately flee the scene.



From CRAFT: “As a small, legacy retailer and cultivation company, CRAFT empathizes with the ever-mounting challenges facing cannabis businesses, specifically social-equity and medical cannabis operators. We understand many are hurting, but at this juncture, we too hurt and desperately need your help.”

Over the past decade, CRAFT has poured its heart and soul into serving patients and consumers in the East Bay. Now, we humbly ask that you share whatever you can to keep CRAFT alive to continue their work serving this vibrant Oakland community.

*ALL FUNDS WILL GO DIRECTLY TO ALIX, CO-FOUNDER OF CRAFT, TO BE USED FOR THE MANY REPAIRS NEEDED AT THEIR FACILITY.
