There has been a lot of cannabis action in the 116th Congress and that is not an accident — it’s time for cannabis policy reform!
We’ve seen historical hearings, votes, and mark-ups take place with the help of our champions on Capitol Hill. We need to continue to support these efforts and support Members of Congress who fight for cannabis reform. So… how can you help to impact reform in Washington, D.C.?
Mark your calendars for NCIA’s 10th Annual Cannabis Industry Lobby Days on May 19-21! There is no better way to network with other NCIA members, meet with congressional staff and members, attend events, and most importantly tell YOUR stories on Capitol Hill.
What you don’t want to miss out on…
NCIA’s 2nd Annual VIP DAY(taking place during the day of May 19) for NCIA PAC Leadership Circle Members!
