Villaraigosa brings with him two decades of public service. He served
two terms as mayor of Los Angeles from 2005 to 2013, was the Speaker of
the California State Assembly from 1998 to 2000, a Los Angeles
councilmember from 2003 to 2005 and President of the United States
Conference of Mayors in 2012. He was appointed by President Obama to
chair the 2012 Democratic Convention. Time magazine called Villaraigosa
one of the country's 25 most influential Latinos.

Positioned squarely on the national stage, Villaraigosa is considered to
be a leading voice and champion of the "radical middle" in American
politics, known for his exceptional skill at building broad bipartisan
coalitions. Villaraigosa has culled a national reputation as a fiercely
independent thinker willing to challenge power even at heavy personal
and political cost.

"California is the largest legal cannabis market in the world, and Los
Angeles is the epicenter of our fast-evolving industry," said MedMen
co-founder and CEO Adam Bierman. "Few people understand Los Angeles and
our home state better than Mayor Villaraigosa. He will be instrumental
in guiding MedMen's expansion in the Golden State and through his broad
network, Mr. Villaraigosa will help MedMen solidify its presence across
the country. He has dedicated his career to empowering local
communities, and we look forward to his leadership."

Villaraigosa was President of the American Federation of Government
Employees Local 3230 representing employees at the U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission. He was also a former union organizer and field
representative for the United Teachers of Los Angeles. He is a past
president of the Southern California chapter of the American Civil
Liberties Union, and served on the Southern California Rapid Transit
District and on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority twice over two
decades.

"I'm excited for this opportunity to shape the cannabis industry and its
commitment to social equity by joining the board of the company that is
leading the charge," Villaraigosa said.

A leading cultivator, producer and retailer of state-sanctioned cannabis
in the U.S., MedMen currently operates 19 licensed facilities in
California, Nevada and New York.
