Importance of Cannabis Advocacy

As part of an evolving industry, it is important to take time to thank those who tirelessly lobby and work to change the laws and create the legislation that allows this industry to exist in a legal manner.

We are proud to do what we can to support industry organizations such as NCIA, MPP and Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), among others, and we encourage you to consider how you can help as well.

In our efforts to support the legalization effort, we have donated money to MPP, used Smile.Amazon to donate money to SSDP, participated in Lobby Days and continued our NCIA membership. We do these things because without these organizations and the people in them, our company would not exist. Those working to further legalization across the country make it possible for us to work within the cannabis industry.

We donate to these organizations and support their causes without an agenda of our own, other than to further cannabis legalization across the country, and encourage you to do the same.

We were also honored to take part in a friendly competition with American Cannabis Company during the month of November to raise funds for men’s health through the Movember Foundation. Our team grew moustaches, raised money and even danced their way through the month to support a worthwhile cause.

We hope to do more to help charitable causes and legalization efforts in the future, and hope you will consider joining us along the way.
