Welcome to the California Cannabis Industry Association.
CCIA was formed to unite the cannabis industry in California and to allow it to speak with one voice at the state and local levels. We strive to educate and act as a resource to lawmakers regarding all areas of the cannabis industry. We are also dedicated to addressing issues related to driving under the influence, unlawful diversion to minors, and substance abuse.
- Create a State Regulatory Structure for California’s Medical Cannabis Industry
The California State legislature is going to try and pass regulations for the medical marijuana industry this coming legislative session. With an organized voice we had a good presence at the Capitol and were able to be very influential this last legislative cycle. With a strong organized voice our industry will be able to ensure that we have fair and sensible regulations.
- 2014 State Legislative Outreach
It's never too soon to start thinking about the coming years, and we're already looking at how the cannabis industry can maximize its influence in Sacramento in the upcoming future. By reaching out to next year's legislative candidates early, CCIA is setting itself up to be ahead the pack. Placing ourselves in positions to form bonds and educate our future leaders now, we, as an industry, will be remembered after they've been elected.
- Industry Professionalization
CCIA is actively working with our members to help them professionalize and find solutions to business the issues that California's cannabis industry face everyday. This year CCIA drafted and sponsored legislation that would have created a financial co-op system for the CA medical cannabis industry.
