Ten Years Of NCIA Featuring Aaron Smith


The National Cannabis Industry Association, which currently represents nearly 2,000 member businesses, turns 10 years old in 2020!

NCIA was founded in 2010 at a time after the release of the Ogden Memo by Justice Department directing prosecutors not to prioritize the use of federal resources to prosecute patients with serious illnesses or their caregivers who are complying with state laws on medical marijuana, laying the groundwork for a new national industry.

It’s been a long, wild ride representing the next great American industry. Hear from our Executive Director Aaron Smith about what it’s been like to advocate for the responsible cannabis industry and grow the association for over a decade!
