Delving into the Weeds with Beth Stavola of MPX
Guest post by KCSA Strategic Communications
Welcome back to another episode of the Green Rush! This week, Anne, & Lewis chat with fellow New Jerseyan Beth Stavola, the Chief Operating Officer of MPX Bioceutical, one of the leading, vertically integrated holding companies in the cannabis industry. Beth began her cannabis journey in 2012, shortly after Arizona voters approved medical cannabis in the state, and opened one of the first dispensaries along Arizona’s southern border in the town of Douglas. Since then, she’s built a cannabis empire that stretches across the U.S. and was most recently acquired by MPX in January 2017 for $25 million. In this week’s conversation, Beth dives in on a number of topics including the differences in running a public cannabis company in Canada vs. being public in the US, the role of women and minorities in the burgeoning cannabis industry and how she was able to convince her younger sister to follow in her footsteps and into the cannabis industry.
