We started Police & Thieves in response to the political and social blanching of marijuana by an industry that has stripped the plant of its power. This commodification has made CBD bath balms ubiquitous and has sterilized its subversive potency with the scientific term, “Cannabis.” Part of our reconquista is to embrace the history of marijuana in its totality, including its counterculture, by acknowledging the past and celebrating the creativity that has arisen out of oppression. Police & Thieves is an apotropaic symbol of that possibility. Police & Thieves holds in respect sophistication and aesthetics. Marijuana has been used for centuries as a medium to motivate the mind, to create, collaborate, and build community. It has been used to subvert power. It has been used to commune with power. Our goal is not to reduce flower to its highest THC content but to give prominence to previously neglected qualities of marijuana (such as the entourage effect) in order to cultivate a customizable experience. We are a woman and minority-owned company based in Denver, CO.
Inklination is used throughout the identity of the luxury marijuana brand.
