California's Collective Voice for the Cannabis Industry
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 Tuesday, July 2nd 2019, Governor Newsom signed AB 97, the cannabis budget trailer bill. This bill makes critical investments in cannabis equity programs, bolsters state enforcement against illicit cannabis operations, and extends the provisional license program to ensure that more cannabis operators can enter the compliant cannabis marketplace while undergoing rigorous environmental review.
CCIA continues to encourage the Newsom Administration to prioritize increased collaboration with the cannabis industry, the legislature, and the regulatory agencies in order to create a comprehensive plan that will streamline business operations, prioritize public safety and health, and minimize the growing illicit market.
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.
