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.

Missouri Cannabis Industry Association Presents

Crowne Plaza Hotel – Airport, St. Louis

The Missouri Cannabis Industry Association (MCIA) will be hosting the Spring 2019 Business Conference, CannaConSTL in St. Louis, Missouri. We’re planning a comprehensive industry conference to meet the needs of Missouri’s new medical marijuana (MMJ) industry. Join us Friday and Saturday, April 12 and 13, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Lambert Airport in St. Louis.

Featured speakers will include Mr. Lyndall Fraker, Director of the Missouri Medical Marijuana Program and Dr. Randall Williams, Director of the Department of Health and Senior Services.

Both of these gentlemen will discuss the licensing process for those who hope to participate in the MMJ industry in Missouri.

This is a must-attend event that will cover all aspects of MMJ business. Our lineup of seasoned industry speakers and keynotes will answer all of your questions. We’ll have the latest information about licensing. MCIA will offer an expanded expo hall with full service vendors.

Make valuable connections in banking, legal, security, design/build, greenhouse, lighting, license application, IT/POS, operations, insurance, marketing and more to build your successful MMJ business.

Other speakers will focus on a broad variety of topics related to the business of MMJ, including cultivation, dispensary operation, production of extracts, and concentrates, the emerging hemp industry in Missouri, CBD, and many more.
