MCA in the Media: Supporting our Community

MCA has been busy preparing for the Planning Commission meeting coming up tomorrow, but we’ve also found time to have some important conversations that we think you might want to check out!

Board Chair and Policy Committee co-Chair Patrick Sellers joined Jenn Procacci and The Cannabis Hour on KZYX this morning to discuss the proposed Phase 3 ordinance with Sara Bodnar from the Cannabis Business Association of Mendocino County and Monique Ramirez of the Covelo Cannabis Advocacy Group.

They discuss the proposed 10% expansion, pros and cons, and what affect these proposed changes could have on the cannabis community.

CLICK HERE to listen to the conversation.

Patrick was also included in the following piece written by John Schroyer in MJBizDaily about the provisional license crisis facing cannabis operators throughout the state. Also in the article is Genine Coleman, Executive Director of Origins Council, a Strategic Partner of MCA focused on state-level advocacy for heritage cultivation regions.
