National Cannabis Industry Association Media Relations Director Morgan Fox tells MCN about regulation, policy reform and representation in the field of US cannabis.
The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) was founded in 2010 in the wake of the US Justice Department’s Ogden Memo, which urged prosecutors to deprioritise the deployment of federal resources in prosecuting seriously ill patients for cannabis use as long as the patients and their caregivers complied with state regulations.
10 years later, the association boasts a membership of nearly 2,000 businesses and tens of thousands of professionals from throughout the cannabis industry; and operates the NCIA-PAC, a Political Action Committee providing funding for candidates for public office who support progressive cannabis policy.
The NCIA is dedicated to representing and promoting professionalism and good practice within the industry; and works to influence policy to ensure a positive legislative and socioeconomic ecosystem in the US for industry members and stakeholders.
