Founded in late 2015, the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA) is the first 501(c)(6) not for profit business league created to serve the specific needs of minority cannabis entrepreneurs, workers, and patients/ consumers. The organization currently serves members from across the United States. Its 16-member board of directors is comprised of a diverse group of cannabis industry veterans and activists from across the U.S.
Canadian Franchise Association
The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) is a national, not-for-profit association of more than 700 corporate members representing over 40,000 franchise business owners. They are the voice of the franchise community and the recognized authority on franchising in Canada. They speak for a business sector that represents every industry and touches the lives of every Canadian, in every community across the country.
Global Cannabis Partnership
The Global Cannabis Partnership is a collaboration of leaders in the government-sanctioned adult-use recreational cannabis industry. With representation from government, private-sector and affiliate organizations, the Partnership works to create international standards for the safe and responsible production, distribution and consumption of legal recreational cannabis.
Southern California Coalition
The Southern California Coalition is the Southland’s largest cannabis trade association representing every sector of the cannabis industry. The organization’s mission is to ensure that local, state and federal legislation is inclusive, fair, and implemented in a responsible manner. The Coalition was the largest contributor to the City of Los Angeles Measure M campaign. The organization was instrumental in persuading the City to abandon its policy of limited immunity and begin licensing cannabis businesses. The Coalition moved aggressively to protect the rights of the city’s oldest non-retail cannabis businesses and succeeded in moving this category into the next phase of licensing. As demonstrated above, the Southern California Coalition has played a major role in shaping cannabis policy in Los Angeles since its inception in 2016.
