Originally founded under the name United Patients Alliance, The ultimate goal of the Association of Cannabis Professionals is to advocate for and protect the interests of our members and clients. We put cannabis users, cultivators, and distributors in touch with all of the resources they need in order to be successful in their cannabis related endeavors. We are a 501c6 Trade Association aimed at aiding the legal cannabis industry remain fully complaint, taxed and regulated. It is long overdue that we tax and regulate the adult use of cannabis, and the Association hopes to propel the state of California, and eventually the whole country, into a new age of legal cannabis where law abiding patients, cultivators, vendors, and recreational users need not fear for their safety. The legalization of the adult use of cannabis will take money out of the illegal drug trade, which aids in the proliferation of harmful narcotics and other illicit practices free of tax and oversight; this is wrong.
