Chief legal counsel to Canna Care Docs, and Principal, CBD Thera |
Mike Maloney grew up in Massachusetts and has built his legal and business career in the Commonwealth. He is originally from the South Shore and a 2006 graduate of New England Law. He has developed and continues to run a very successful criminal defense law firm, Maloney Law, and has tried dozens of life-sentence felony cases throughout Massachusetts. Mike has a multi-faceted career managing many priorities. He built a chain of medical marijuana evaluation facilities from the ground up and sold the 180+ employee company in December 2017. He also owns an alternative wellness company, CBD Thera. Mike manages a large staff for his businesses which include many former addicts who have broken the vice-grip of addiction and add substantial value to his companies’ successes, a model he believes can be replicated across many spectrums. Mike values pragmatic problem solving and will implement an aggressive approach to criminal justice reform and the opioid epidemic. As the one independent in the race, his approach is about practical solutions and less bureaucracy, not beholden to any party platform. Mike is an avid Bikram yoga practitioner and enjoys hiking with his dog, Yoshi.
