We’ve created a roundup of some cannabis related organizations which are no longer around – we’ve done this because we want to make sure the message they were trying to spread is still heard, even if their websites are no longer live! Let’s get started:
The Cannabis Business Alliance was an industry leading resource and trade association for business owners formed in 2009. The Alliance advocated for sensible and collaborative public policy that protected employees, patients, and clients of the medical and retail marijuana industry.
The CBA played a vital role for its members in the development of the cannabis industry. It promotes best business practices, works to enhance the emerging industry’s role in state-level business economy, and supports education and safety to protect employees and purchasers within regulated marijuana commerce. Although the CBA no longer seem to be active, they had a great impact on the industry.
Since 2011, the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform (CCPR) has organized, energized, and empowered people to stand up and take action against the United States’ damaging cannabis policies. The CCPR is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to replacing the harmful policy of cannabis prohibition with reasonable regulation, based on science, through ballot initiatives, legislative collaboration and public education campaigns.
