Dustin Moore has been a driving force behind California’s efforts to legalize and regulate cannabis for nearly a decade. In 2011, while with the Speaker of the California Assembly, Dustin advocated for cannabis policy that served as the foundation for the regulatory framework in place today. In 2014, he began working to develop, and ultimately served as Deputy Campaign Manager for, Proposition 64, the successful ballot measure that legalized adult-use cannabis in California.
After Proposition 64 passed in 2016, and having developed such a large body of knowledge about how to effectively regulate the cannabis industry, Dustin began working with local, state, national and international jurisdictions to assist in the implementation of their regulatory and licensing programs, including municipalities throughout California and in Canada, Mexico and throughout Europe. Dustin is regarded as a subject matter expert whose advice and experience is sought by both the private and public sectors nationally and internationally.
He is also a founding partner at Axiom Advisors, the state’s leading strategic consulting firm providing business and compliance services to professional cannabis associations, cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, distributors, testing labs and retailers.
As a leading voice on cannabis policy and regulatory navigation, Dustin has advised local governments on the development of thoughtful cannabis events policy. He also serves as Chief Policy Officer for The Emerald Cup, the world’s largest and most respected cannabis competition.
