About Us

Since 2011, in every “something needs to be done” moment in cannabis in Montana, the MTCIA was there. Whether it was building statutory infrastructure or protecting access, the MTCIA stepped up

We want Montana to be competitive. We want Montana providers of cannabis to be able to continue to provide a quality product and service. We aim at creating a market of excellence with empowered customers. We want to be good employers and community members as we all participate in the ongoing process of creating a pleasant and workable world for each of us.

The MTCIA is member-driven and mission-based. We aim at functional regulations. We do so with the customer in mind. 

To that end, we shape and analyze public policy based on principles. Safety. Quality. Accessibility. Affordability. By shaping policy around the needs of the customer, we create an industry that fits comfortably into our Montana communities.

Some of our members have served Montana cannabis customers for 15 years. Others are relatively new. We invite Montana-licensed providers to join the MTCIA and play a role in shaping a cannabis industry to be proud of.

We invite cardholders to visit our members’ dispensaries. Meet the people and businesses who have supported access in Montana for a decade. 

The MTCIA networks with national groups and is a member of the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp (ATACH).
