Overview

Issues Management Group began operating in the cannabis space before the first adult-use sale was registered in Massachusetts. Over the years, we have worked alongside numerous industry organizations, including vertically-integrated operators, industry associations and their membership, third party technology platforms, and mission-focused programs. These collaborations have taken many forms, depending on the specific needs of the client, whether that be supporting public testimony delivered to the Cannabis Control Commission, promoting a newly launched product, or hosting an industry job fair.

As the multi-billion-dollar cannabis industry continues to expand, we’re analyzing the growing pains and have the foresight to plan for how we can support a marketplace that is accessible for patients and adult use customers. We work hand-in-hand with organizations that are bringing new ideas to the cannabis space, and we are helping to normalize cannabis as a natural supplement for wellness. From our creative portfolio to our deep bench of communicators fluent in cannabis regulations and policy, we create meaningful partnerships to help our clients navigate a maturing industry.
