Mississippi Independent Cannabis Association
Connect. Learn. Advocate.
Founded on the principles of growth and development. MICA, Mississippi’s Independent Cannabis Association, is determined to promote the advancement of the state’s legitimate cannabis industry.
Support Local Operators
Multi-State Operators (MSO’s) export Mississippi profits out of state, causing economic loss to local Mississippi communities. MICA advocates for local Mississippi-owned, and operated businesses that support local communities and patients and keep profits in the state.
Movement for Change
MICA works with state legislators, the Mississippi Board of Health, MSDH officials, and community leaders across the state to ensure the voice of local independent operators is heard loud and clear.
Founded by a team of craft cannabis cultivators, extractors, processors, dispensary owners, transportation and logistics providers, insurance providers, security professionals, construction companies, and more, MICA is the voice of independently owned cannabis operators in Mississippi, no matter the specialty.
We grow our local economies by supporting our craft farmers, locally-owned dispensaries, cannabis processors, transporters, and other independently-owned cannabis-based businesses.
A Passion for Helping & Driving Local Business to Success…
Multi-State Operators (MSO’s) – are large-scale corporations that ship profits out of state and drive economic loss in Mississippi communities. Our mission is to advocate for independently owned cannabis operators so Mississippi patient dollars stay in Mississippi and locally owned operators have a level playing field.
Our advocacy team at MICA represents the legislative needs of local cannabis companies through registered lobbying activities. Our network of members is represented at the State Capitol in Jackson, Mississippi, by Southern Consulting Associates, providing direct access to the decision-making table when laws are being made.
