THE INSIDER ISSUE
Lacy Wilcox is a professional and passionate Cannabis advocate who has worn many hats, including her time in state service, raising children, building a licensed Cannabis operation with her husband and partners, and volunteering as the elected President of the Alaska Marijuana Industry Association. To say she’s an insider is an understatement, and if her experience and titles tell you anything, it’s that she’s involved in a wide array of issues the Cannabis industry is facing and working to make things better for consumers, business owners and the industry as a whole. To celebrate her contributions to the industry and tap into her vast areas of experience and knowledge, we sat down for a series of Zooms to discuss the history of the AMIA, pressing issues like a potential license cap and federal legalization, and hear Wilcox’s thoughts on how the craft Alaskan market can compete and thrive in the unwritten future of Cannabis legalization. While this interview spans six pages and many important topics, we actually had to edit our conversation down to fit – and will be revisiting these topics and more in the future with a monthly AMIA Industry Issues column debuting this winter.
