NCIA Policy Council

The NCIA Policy Council, comprised of industry leaders selected by NCIA’s Board of Directors, is the cannabis industry’s policy “think tank” playing a critical role in the development of cannabis policy at the federal level as well as models that inform  the promulgation of effective state regulations.

Policy Council members examine federal laws and regulations related to other types of products, as well as the characteristics of cannabis itself, in order to determine the optimal way to treat cannabis from a public policy standpoint. Areas of examination include tax policy, the classification of cannabis, advertising and marketing, and the broad range of regulatory issues that will arise at the federal level in the coming years. The Policy Council produces white papers on these topics for policymakers, the media, and industry operators.

NCIA is accepting applications from our members wishing to serve on the Policy Council at one of three levels of financial support. Click here for more information on pricing and benefits.

“The NCIA Policy Council is a productive place to come together with our peers throughout the country, offering different and unique perspectives on how to tackle the issues at hand. We have been very happy to have a constructive outlet for preparing for federal policy changes with a new network of cannabis industry professionals.”
