Our Mission

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.

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 included medical organizations, law enforcement, labor unions, local government associations, and environmental protection groups. Together we created a never before seen coalition at the state capitol, which was responsible for guiding MMRSA through the legislature.

In addition to helping shape the legal and regulatory framework for California's emerging cannabis industry, CCIA membership also provides a statewide platform to promote your business and several valuable discounts from participating cannabis industry partners.
