The Cannabis Alliance recently surveyed our members in an effort to understand their most pressing issues.  Each of our 170 members receives one vote (i.e 1 membership = 1 vote).  Our membership is as follows and represents segments of the entire industry:

51% Cannabis Businesses licensed by the WSLCB (Including labs and transit licensees)

38% Ancillary Businesses 

6% Individuals/Patients/Non-Profits

5% are other cannabis industry groups

The Cannabis Alliance is a non-profit trade association that understands that the war on drugs has created misperceptions, mistrust and even fear about the industry and legalization. We want to change those perceptions and improve the business environment for our members, through education, advocacy and helping set the highest possible industry standards.  Our members pride themselves on caring about the entire community including consumers and patients. These values are reiterated by our membership’s selected priorities.
