Our Valued Network


Founded in 2015, the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA) is the largest national trade association dedicated to serving the needs of minority cannabis businesses and our communities.

MCBA represents minority and allied cannabis businesses, aspiring entrepreneurs, and supporters who share a vision of an equitable, just, and responsible cannabis industry. Our mission is carried out by a 15-member Board of Directors comprised of diverse industry veterans, medical and legal professionals, advocates, and community leaders.

Where we explore uses for all plant medicines and propel research with grace, science, and strategy.

I’m Gaetano, born and raised in Newark, NJ. I’m an advocate and researcher for social justice, cannabis, and psychedelics. I worked for over 25 years in cancer research with thousands of cancer patients and medical professionals internationally.

The best part about this industry is the growing community. If you’re new to the sphere and you’re overwhelmed with all the events and notifications, we can always chat and I can tell you about the events that might best fit your interest. What’s so amazing is that over the years, I have made so many friends and got to watch those I knew grow and succeed!

I am a medical doctor, board certified in Psychiatry. I treat problems such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, ADHD, OCD, interpersonal problems, and substance use disorders.

I provide psychotherapy (talk therapy) and/or medication management when needed. My psychotherapeutic approach incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness practices, and psychodynamic principles. My goal is to create a space where you can feel safe expressing your feelings, thoughts, and needs. I will engage you in an exploration of your mind, body, behavior, and relationships. I want to help you enhance your self-awareness and learn to practice self compassion. Symptom relief is not the only goal. I hope to help you discover your best self, take steps toward change, and thrive.

Our mission is to create an inspiring and inclusive space for psychedelic education, scholarship, and community. This conference cultivates a setting of diverse experts to facilitate meaningful discussion, foster ideas, and expanding understanding. Together, we will consciously and creatively advance the field of psychedelics for the greater good of society. Our varied conference programming includes panels, lectures, mixers, workshops, and opportunities to engage with the broader psychedelic community.
