Get Involved With Your Industry
Cannabis industry organizations can take a number of forms, the most common of which are PACs and trade associations. PACs lobby and work to influence legislation and regulations. Trade associations help connect members of an industry, providing opportunities for professional development, continuing education and the development of best practices.
As the cannabis industry matures, more individuals and businesses will join and support these groups. Those who do will find numerous benefits, including the chance to meet industry players and regulators, stay on top of developments in the rapidly evolving world of legal cannabis and have a say in how our community is portrayed in the media and the halls of government.
