Wow, does the time fly! It seems like just yesterday we were debuting the Quarterly Cannabis Caucus event series and now here we are – 8 months and 36 events later – getting ready to kick off the final round this October across the country.
Registration is now open for the fourth installment of our regionally based Cannabis Caucus series.

During July, we were able to update more than 200 member businesses on our federal advocacy efforts and provided them with the information and tools needed to engage with their elected officials during August recess. We also encouraged our members to participate in our on-site social media campaign to help put a face to our growing industry and bring visibility to the most pressing issues affecting us on a daily basis. You can help us keep the conversation going by using the #WeAreTheCannabisIndustry, #IAmTheCannabisIndustry, #CannaBanking, #DeScheduleNow, and #Reform280E hashtags on social media. Huge thanks to all those who have already participated!
