The mission of the West Michigan Cannabis Guild is

To responsibly and equitably develop and promote West Michigan’s legal cannabis industry
through education, community involvement, and support of legal cannabis causes.

The mission was last proposed by the Guild's Board of Directors and ratified by its members in July 2022. Our Board of Directors is responsible for setting the overall direction of the Cannabis Guild, with the four officers executing the plan. The Board meets in Grand Rapids every other month.  Board elections take place every March at the Guild's annual meeting. If you are interested in attending meetings and/or being on the Board, please email us at The Board application is available in the members area. Thank you!
