To promote the growth of a responsible and legitimate cannabis industry and work for a favorable social, economic, and legal environment for our industry in the state of California.
The California Cannabis Industry Association was founded on the principle of strength in numbers. The thousands of California businesses involved in our state-legal cannabis industry represent a significant economic force. As the industry's most influential state trade association, CCIA works everyday to ensure our burgeoning business sector is represented in a professional and coordinated way at the state level.
Industry in Action
On January 16th, 2019 The Office of Administrative Law released the much anticipated permanent regulations for California's cannabis industry. Implementation of the regulations took effect upon release. Although the regulations need further streamlining, the permanent regulations represent the culmination of years of hard work by the cannabis industry, the licensing authorities, the legislature and the administration. CCIA is currently focused on implementing our 2019 legislative priorities through regulatory and legislative solutions that continue to address public safety goals while streamlining and stabilizing business operations for the cannabis industry.
The Benefits of Membership
Your business's participation with the California Cannabis industry Association means being represented alongside hundreds of other responsible industry leaders committed to bringing about a legitimate and professional cannabis business community.
During the legislative process CCIA has been extremely successful at building coalition partners outside of the cannabis reform movement. This includes medical organizations, law enforcement, labor unions, local and state government associations, and environmental protection groups. Together we create a coalition focused on responsible policy and regulations at the state capitol.
In addition to shaping the legal and regulatory framework for California's emerging cannabis industry, CCIA membership also provides a statewide platform to promote your business while offering you valuable discounts from participating cannabis industry partners.
