Citing a desire to spend more time with family, a founding member and longtime leader of the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA) has resigned as the organization’s executive director and board chairman.

Jesce Horton, 34, who founded the MCBA  in 2015, tendered his resignation last month, according to a Jan. 8 news release from the organization.
