NCIA is leading the unified and coordinated campaign to ensure this emerging sector is treated fairly under federal law.

Our Campaigns

Promoting the growth of a responsible and legitimate cannabis industry


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. To that end, our mission is to ensure that these businesses are treated fairly under federal laws.


Banking Access

To benefit the industry and the state agencies tasked with taxing and regulating it, NCIA is leading a national effort to ensure that state-authorized medical and adult-use marijuana providers are afforded the same banking and financial services as any other legitimate business.


Fair Tax Policy

NCIA believes that state-sanctioned medical and adult-use cannabis businesses should be able to take the same necessary and ordinary tax deductions as other small businesses and is working to reform Section 280E of the federal tax code accordingly.
