Welcome to the Missouri Cannabis Industry Association. We are a group of business owners and entrepreneurs from all walks of life with one thing which unites us, the social responsibility to advance the medical cannabis industry in Missouri. The MCIA will be the go-to organization for the Missouri legislature as they craft the regulations for this new industry. We hope to play a pivotal role in this process, working hand in hand with the politicians, reconciling politics with business.


The Missouri Cannabis Industry Association (MCIA) recognizes the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a catastrophic event and urges its members to follow the guidance of federal, state, and local health agencies in responding to the outbreak.

In concert with this guidance, we have responded by cancelling MCIA scheduled in-person meetings, events, and participation in other events until restrictions are lifted. Recognizing that it is critical to stay engaged in the administrative and political process of implementing Medical Marijuana to ensure patients have access to medicine, MCIA will continue to conduct our business utilizing our online collaborative communication tools.

We would like to assure our members that MCIA is sound and remains committed to our mission to see that patients’ needs are served by caregivers and a competitive commercial market. If there are ways we can be of help to our members, please let us know.

Dave Bennett, President
Missouri Cannabis Industry Association
