Jamie Shaw is Government Relations Director for MMJ Canada. She is a former director of the BC Compassion Club Society (BCCCS), and served three terms on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Association of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries (CAMCD), two and a half of those as President. Her successful lobbying in Vancouver on behalf of those organizations led the city to implement licensing for dispensaries under prohibition, and the creation of a second class of license based heavily on the former, and requiring membership in the latter. She lobbied successfully for and consulted on dispensary regulations in other BC cities as well. Her testimony in the Allard trial was deemed “very important” by the judge in the final ruling. She also co-founder of the first Canadian chapter of Women Grow, and serves on the Board or as Advisor to various cannabis organizations, such as the BC Independent Cannabis Producers Alliance, and NICHE Canada. She is a co-author of the Lift Cannabis Retail Training Course, the first of its kind in Canada, and her writing can be found both on Lift, and the cannabis resource site Canlio.
