More about the NCIA-PAC

Why is the NCIA-PAC important?

NCIA-PAC is a critical component of NCIA’s lobbying efforts. Corporations are prohibited from making direct contributions in connection with federal elections, but certain leaders and employees of business and organizations can establish a PAC to pool their political contributions and support candidates. NCIA-PAC does that for our industry. NCIA-PAC is nonpartisan and supports federal candidates who are open to the challenges and concerns our industry faces, support cannabis reform at the federal level, and introduce or support pro-cannabis legislation.

How are PAC dollars used?

All PAC contributions are used to support political candidates or committees. PACs can contribute up to $5,000 to a federal candidate committee per election (primary, general, or special). PACs may receive up to $5,000 from any eligible individual, PAC, or party committee per calendar year. A current NCIA-PAC financial report is available to NCIA members upon request.

How does supporting NCIA-PAC advance cannabis industry interests?

NCIA-PAC gives our members a voice in supporting legislators who help the industry and allows us to share the compelling stories of our members with elected officials. The PAC also strengthens our success on issues of importance to our organization and the industry as a whole. These successes help us compete, grow our industry, promote helpful policy, and defeat harmful legislation.

How can I get involved?

Federal campaign finance laws require NCIA to get permission from an authorized representative of your NCIA member business before we can ask you for contributions. If your business is not yet an NCIA member, join today. NCIA members interested in getting involved with the PAC should contact us at info@thecannabisindustry.org or (888) 683-5650.
