MITA leads advancements in the cannabis industry through education and advocacy

MITA is the trade association for the cannabis industry in Arizona – but they are prepared to drive change across the country with their industry-shaping model. MITA is designing the education and advocacy blueprint that advances the cannabis industry, bringing together industry experts to enable shared progress.

MITA brings together industry experts to enable shared progress.

Since its founding in 2016, MITA has operated as a nonprofit organization in Arizona, growing in membership over time and driving change in the industry through its impactful initiatives. Education, transparency, inclusivity, and advocacy for thoughtful, free-market-focused regulations are at the core of what drives MITA and lay the foundation for everything they do.

Like Leafly, MITA is not directly involved in plant touching activities. Instead, they share policy information and resources on the evolving cannabis landscape with diverse stakeholders across the country, from media and politicians to consumers and industry experts. With this advocacy, its top-rated podcasts and videos, and monthly industry events, MITA has become the home for people and companies committed to advancing the cannabis industry.
