CEO - Mark Slaugh
Mr. Slaugh has more than six years of experience in the cannabis industry development, consulting and compliance business, having founded iComply in 2011. Through his expertise, he has a successful startup providing valued services to clients on starting operations, production, manufacturing, and retail management as well as compliance consulting, training, and certification. Additionally, he served as the Colorado Springs Medical Cannabis Council (CSMCC) industry membership and executive director and as the Southern Colorado Regional Coordinator for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol (Amendment 64) working on complex, nuanced, and challenging regulatory issues.
He has played a pivotal role in the creation of Colorado’s Cannabis Industry as he worked to craft Colorado’s public policy around marijuana in both the legislature and through rulemaking groups focused on multiple topics including recording keeping, administration, discipline, edibles safety, responsible vendor training, taxation, and compliance. He currently serves as the Executive Director for one of the oldest Colorado Industry Organizations: the Cannabis Business Alliance. Mr. Slaugh has spoken at numerous public testimonies for Colorado legislation and rulemaking as well as local governments like Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Palmer Lake, and Manitou Springs.
Mr. Slaugh also serves as an ambassador for the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) and as a Minority Business Council Member for the largest industry group in the world with over 900 members. He has spoken at each NCIA National Summit leading panel discussions and participating in topics ranging from industry training, standard operating procedures, and infused products manufacturing to laboratory testing safety and regulation.
As a first-generation Brazilian American, Mr. Slaugh carries a passion for social justice by reforming draconian and failed drug policy. By influencing and improving laws, regulation, and public policy in the marijuana industry, and through iComply’s efforts to create integrity, excellence, and transparency in the budding business, Mark’s passion makes a real difference in the way the world views, works with, and treats marijuana and its users.
