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 progress 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.
