The road to a safer, stronger cannabis industry helps keep dollars in the local economy. Studies across the country show that spending locally recirculates 3-5 times as much money in your community as spending with a non-locally owned business. Your community collects more sales taxes to pay for emergency services, parks, libraries and so much more. The profits stay local rather than being sent out of state or even out of country. This helps support local nonprofits and causes you care about. WHEN YOU SUPPORT LOCALLYOWNED BUSINESSES: • Money gets reinvested locally, so more dollars recirculate in the local economy. • Nonprofits and community causes are stronger. • Regions with a higher proportion of locally owned businesses have stronger job creation and better wages than other regions. • Banking locally puts your money to work growing the local economy. Learn more at golocal.coop/facts

LOCAL RETAILER: Support Sonoma County When you choose a locally owned and operated retailer rather than a non-local competitor, your dollars have 3x the impact within your local economy. In addition, compared to non-locally owned businesses, local businesses reinvest a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community.

Cannabis Stats SONOMA COUNTY LICENSED OPERATORS (2021): • 194 cultivators • 8 microbusinesses • 53 manufacturers • 59 distributors • 3 transport-only distributors • 25 retailers

LOCAL FARMER:

LOCAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTION:

No Farm, No Industry Without licensed cannabis farms, everything else crumbles. It’s important to support farms that utilize regenerative techniques and leave the land better than they found it. Mercy Wellness currently offers these dynamic farms a price on their product well above the market average. If the farms that do everything right don’t survive, then what’s the point? In these times, they need good retail partners, good distributor partners, and great financial institution partners.

No Bank, No Transparency

LOCAL DISTRIBUTOR: No Route To Market, No Industry Every farm in every industry needs a path to the customer. Cannabis regulations require transportation and packaging through a DCC licensed distributor. When that distributor is local and vertically integrated, like Mercy Distribution, those tax dollars are kept local and get the product on the shelf more quickly, providing a fresher product that better represents the farm.

When local cannabis companies have a strong financial institution partner, the entire community benefits. Locallybased financial institutions bring a host of benefits for cannabis businesses including a trusted local community partner for secure, safer systems for cash management, the ability to pay employees and manage payroll more safely, and options of merchant processing for customer convenience.

LOCAL NONPROFITS: Supporting The Community at the Finish Line When local cannabis companies are partnered with local financial institutions, the entire community benefits. Secure and safe financial foundations in this industry open doors, allowing companies like Mercy to gain a clear view of their finances and recognize opportunities to give back. In this light, Mercy Wellness is grateful to have supported nonprofits in 2021 valuing more than $50,000 - with an additional $30,000+ coming through direct donations from their patrons, who they call their MercyFam. And Community First Credit Union made well over $121,000 in donations to nonprofits in 2021.
