Policy & Advocacy
KCIA plays a critical role in in the development of medical cannabis legalization policy at the state level. KCIA examines state and federal laws and regulations related to other types of products, as well as the characteristics of cannabis itself, in order to determine the optimal way to treat cannabis from a public policy standpoint.
Areas of examination include: tax policy, classification, advertising and marketing, and the broad range of regulatory issues that arise in other states and at the federal level.KCIA is a productive place to come together with peers throughout Kansas, offering different and unique perspectives on how to tackle the issues at hand. We provide a constructive outlet for lobbying and preparing state policy with a network of cannabis industry professionals.
