our programming

what we offer


The most effective method of cannabis industry growth within equality and diversity is through fair policies and regulations. Each state with a legal cannabis industry begins by creating policies and laws that either support equality and diversity or block them. MCBA will:

• Work directly with local representatives to support fair implementation and enforcement of sensible cannabis policies

• Provide resources for governments and citizens to design and advocate for better policies.
