MCC Overview

Our Mission

The MCC is a nonprofit organization founded in 2006 for the purpose of providing education and resources that support the advancement of healthcare services provided to patients who have a physician’s approval for the use of cannabis.

MCC Classes

The MCC is located at 52 North Mentor Avenue in Pasadena, California. Over 3,000 participants including physicians, patients, attorneys, dispensary operators, cultivators, law enforcement officers and municipal officials have attended classes and workshops provided by the MCC.

Medical Cannabis Information and Resource Center

Although many cities still have an Ordinance prohibiting a “retail license” for the sale of cannabis products, the Medical Cannabis “Information and Resource Center” is a viable option.

The Information and Resource Center can include a cannabis bookstore, cultivation classes, physician medical cannabis approvals, information services regarding the medicinal use of cannabinoids, the Department of Public Health ID Card Program and the SB 94 Regulatory Information.

The Information and Resource Center can be used to effectively generate community support for the City’s approval of a Medical Cannabis Retail License.

MCC Approved by California Department of Social Services (CDSS) to Teach SB 94 Regulations

January 2018 the CDSS approved the MCC to teach a course on Senate Bill 94 for Licensees of Health Care Facilities. The course is currently taught under the CDSS Continuing Education Program for the Re-certification of Health Care Facility Licensees and Administrators.

National Institute of Health (NIH) Cannabis Study

Medical Cannabis Practitioner Program

In a clinical setting, program participants learn how to provide patient information and services as a Practitioner specializing in cannabinoid therapeutics.  


MCC Practitioners use a HIPAA Compliant ON-LINE Tele-Health platform to assist non-ambulatory patients by providing the information that is needed in order to use cannabis effectively and safely as a complementary treatment option.

Physician Orientation

The MCC Physician Orientation is an on-line class for physicians who approve a patient’s use of cannabis.

The Orientation focuses on compliance under federal law and Medical Board guidelines, including liability issues related to the approval of a patient’s use of cannabis.

Patient Cultivation Workshop

Under Senate Bill 94, California residents are permitted to cultivate up to six (6) plants.  The MCC Cultivation Workshop uses live plants to teach participants how to produce up to 1 pound of cannabis every 6-8 weeks.

The cultivation system is in-door and easy to learn. The MCC has taught the Cultivation Workshop since 2011.

Clean Green Organic Certification Program

The Clean Green Program, founded by Chris Van Hook a USDA Organic Certifier, is based on the USDA Organic Program. The MCC 6-Plant In-door Cultivation System is Clean Green Certified.
