Meet The Founder: Angie Calhoun

As the Founder of the Mississippi Cannabis Patients Alliance (MCPA) Angie’s passion for her role as a medical cannabis patient advocate emerged while witnessing first-hand the life-changing benefits of medical cannabis as her son, Austin, began battling severe Lyme Disease at the age of 17. 

For years, Angie has shared her son’s medical cannabis journey with people across the state of Mississippi. She actively campaigned for Initiative 65, participated in three Mississippi Secretary of State Hearings, hosted a Patient’s for Initiative 65 rally, debated live on Mississippi Public Broadcasting, has written multiple op-eds, hosted a press conference on the Mississippi State Capitol Steps and has been interviewed numerous times by the press regarding the benefits of medical cannabis.

Angie is the past Board Chair of the Mississippi Medical Marijuana Association (3MA) where she stepped down to start the Mississippi Cannabis Patients Alliance. 

Angie has developed numerous ways to help patients and the industry to succeed. One is that MCPA has a collaborative agreement with the University of Mississippi’s National Center for Cannabis Research and Education (our countries oldest cannabis research center) and  the Releaf App to help patients save money while making a clear path for future patients in knowing what strains work best for certain debilitating medical conditions. 

This research program can help patients around the world! Secondly, MCPA hosts numerous patient events that help inform their patients of the medicinal benefits of medical cannabis along with other awareness information to help keep patients safe. 

MCPA also provides a practitioner and dispensary page to help her patients find them with ease. Angie has plans to create even more unique ways to help her patients in the near future.

She is also a board member for the Rankin County Republican Executive Committee and is an active participant and supporter of the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office Offender Re-entry Program. She has been a business entrepreneur for almost 30 years in her hometown of Puckett, Mississippi, located in southeast Rankin County, where she has lived her entire life.
