LAS VEGAS – Feb. 9, 2022 – PRESS RELEASE – Nevada’s oldest and largest cannabis trade association, the Nevada Cannabis Association (NCA), previously the Nevada Dispensary Association, has named Brandon Wiegand as its new president.
Wiegand, chief commercial officer for the Nevada-based cannabis operator The Source+, has been a member of the NCA since 2015 and has served as a board member since 2019. Established in 2015, The Source+ is a vertically integrated business with four dispensaries across Nevada, in addition to manufacturing, cultivation and production operations. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Wiegand has extensive leadership experience in the state’s cannabis industry. Wiegand assumes the role of president after the NCA’s previous president, Tisha Black, stepped down to run for Nevada attorney general.
“We are grateful for Tisha’s service to the NCA and her leadership in the cannabis industry,” said Wiegand. “I am looking forward to building on the NCA’s current momentum. We are adding new members and voices to the association, increasing educational and compliance resources for the industry, and advancing policies at the federal, state, and local level to help cannabis businesses stabilize and grow.”
Created in 2014, the NCA recently expanded its membership beyond dispensaries to include cultivation, production and distribution licensees, independent testing laboratories, and affiliated cannabis businesses across Nevada. The NCA supports cannabis companies through four channels: government affairs and lobbying, education and compliance resources, networking events, and exclusive business partnerships.
