2018/2019 Priorities

Each year, in an effort to understand our members' most pressing issues, The Cannabis Alliance surveys our membership on their legislative and regulatory priorities. We recently wrapped up the poll for 2018/2019 and below are the results. Each of our 185 members receive one vote (e.g. 1 membership = 1 vote).

First, The Alliance would like to congratulate our members on their efforts and progress with last year's priorities. Thanks to your hard work, our goal to "abolish quarantine requirements for transfers" has been achieved and it looks like our goal to "abolish quarantine requirements for waste" will be another victory for us this year.

Also, The Alliance would like to commend our members on their selflessness. Our industry association chose two out of four priorities that help the greater good, rather than personal profits. Our members pride themselves on caring about the entire community including consumers and patients. These values are reiterated by our membership’s selected priorities.

The Cannabis Alliance aims to address these issues through committee work. If your are passionate about any/all of the issues above please consider joining an Alliance committee today.
