About

The Michigan Canna Coalition Association was established in 2017 as a network of cannabis entrepreneurs and service providers dedicated to impacting their local community while rallying to support local Michigan cannabis entrepreneurs. Founding members created the Coalition to help foster relationships amongst entrepreneurs and professionals who believe that the cannabis industry should be available to any entrepreneur, ensuring social equity in an emerging cannabis industry.  The Michigan Canna Coalition fosters social equity while bringing economic development to communities across the state. Members believe in growing local, supporting their local communities, and providing economic opportunity in the places that they live, work, and play. 

Members of the Coalition include Medical Marijuana Licensing Facilities Act (MMFLA) licensees, caregivers, service professionals, individuals, and organizations who either participate in or serve the emerging cannabis industry.

Community Development

Michigan Canna Coalition Association members are required, as a membership fee, to donate 1% of their gross profits to the Coalition, annually. As a grant-making entity, the Michigan Cannabis Coalition Association provides local non-profit organizations with funds to support community programs and projects that expand social justice, ensuring communities with the most need get their support. Funding is provided through a grant application process; each project is evaluated by members of the community they serve. 

Social Equity

The Michigan Canna Coalition Association believes that cannabis should be an economy that everyone can access. The Association is dedicated to creating a cannabis industry that is representative of all who dreams of being a cannabis entrepreneur. 


 

Business Support

The Michigan Canna Coalition Association uses its membership base to help support cost-effective small business opportunities. Through mass buying power, the members receive wholesale pricing with preferred supply vendors. Members have access to the best pricing on employee benefits, healthcare, worker’s compensation, liability insurance, supplies, and professional services. Members receive the discounts of major corporations while still functioning as individual entities. As the cannabis economy continues to evolve, accessing an immediate supply chain of resources and networks of distribution will only help to create a thriving cannabis economy.
