POLICY & ADVOCACY
Our priority is to defend and advance the interests of the workforce of the cannabis industry. The core of our mission, is the belief that our members should be treated fairly under federal law and that the cannabis industry must operate like any other legitimate business sector in this country.
State-legal cannabis businesses should not pay higher effective tax rates than other businesses or struggle to find bank accounts. And business owners certainly should not face the possibility of arrest and prosecution by federal authorities when they are acting in compliance with state and local laws.
In addition to direct lobbying for changes in the law, CWC promotes the benefits of the cannabis industry to an audience largely unfamiliar with the incredible progress being seen across the country. We make sure that the industry is given the credit it deserves for creating jobs, generating tax revenue, and changing the lives of everyone who has come in contact with it.
There are many issues that the cannabis industry faces and CWC is on the front lines tackling these issues on behalf of its members.
