Members of the Oregon Cannabis Association testify at hearings, they offer advice to policy makers, and they even sit on advisory committees, which are actively engaged in moving policy through Oregon state and local governments. The Oregon Cannabis Association hosts a number of educational and networking events around the year, bringing together the local business communities.
The Oregon Cannabis Association is a statewide organization representing the need for sensible cannabis regulation at the local, state, and federal level. More than anything, the Oregon Cannabis Association aims to protect Oregon’s cannabis industry. However, the level of involvement in local and statewide policy, engagement with the community, and extensive lobbying of pro-cannabis reform to Congress sets the bar where the opponents had only expected a bong. And that is the point: change the old perception and appeal through reason, science, and community. The best part is, anyone can join!
Started in 2014, the Oregon Cannabis Association is a collection of local small business owners, such as dispensary owners, edible product manufacturers, cultivation companies, laboratories, growers, banking officials, health specialists, researchers, legal counselors, security and transportation specialists, and financial service providers.
