Arizona Dispensaries Association

The Arizona Dispensaries Association, a member-based organization representing cannabis dispensaries in the Grand Canyon State, is seeking proposals from public relations agencies.

The ADA is looking a PR firm with or without cannabis experience that can promote Arizona’s burgeoning cannabis marketplace via an awareness campaign as well as provide general public relations services for the trade group.

Possession and cultivation of recreational cannabis became legal in Arizona last year, with the first state-licensed sales occurring in January 2021.

Scope of work includes creation and execution of an awareness campaign; brand and messaging development; providing general public relations support; and website development.

The ADA plans to award a contract in early August with the intention of launching a preliminary campaign in October.

Deadline for proposals is 5 p.m. (MST) on Thursday, July 29. Proposals should be submitted to [email protected] with “RFP for Public Relations Services” in the subject line.

Questions should be directed to Executive Director Samuel Richard, [email protected], by 5 p.m. (MST) on Tuesday, July 27.
