economic empowerment

MCBA is committed to economic equality and excellence within the cannabis industry. We provide access to quality industry training and networking opportunities that help to reduce the diversity divide within the cannabis industry. We assist minorities, and all interested in furthering this cause, by helping to find jobs and sustainable business opportunities in this fast-paced and exciting industry.

social justice

Studies show that the criminalization of marijuana continues to disproportionately affect minorities in a negative way. It is MCBA’s objective to serve in eradicating this pervasive inequality. We do so by providing education on the history, culture and politics of the cannabis industry. And we advocate for the creation of sensible and effective cannabis laws and policies, as well as the fair execution of such.

patient awareness

The responsible use of cannabis has been reported to assist in the treatment of a number of medical ailments and social conditions, many of which affect the minority community at exceeding rates. The MCBA exists to strengthen patient knowledge about their rights, treatment options and access points.

We believe in patient advocacy and patient centric business practices. Our members enjoy access to important information about effective medical use of cannabis, progressive scientific studies, local laws, how to become a patient and more.
