Protecting Legitimate Business NCIA is educating the public and policymakers about the contribution legitimate cannabis businesses make to the national economy by generating extensive tax revenue and well-paying, sustainable jobs.
Banking Access To benefit the industry and the state agencies tasked with taxing and regulating it, NCIA is leading a national effort to ensure medical marijuana providers are afforded the same banking and financial services as any other legitimate business.
Fair Tax Policy NCIA believes that state-sanctioned medical cannabis businesses should be able to take the same tax deductions as other small businesses and is working to reform the federal tax code accordingly.
