2019 WRCBA Regional Cannabis Legislative & Policy Conference

Wednesday, January 9th - Seattle, WA


Cost: $0!!!


The Western Regional Cannabis Business Alliance (WRCBA) was formed in early 2018, representing legal cannabis business owners in Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Nevada and the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp. The organization's efforts have spread nationwide with multi-state representation presenting a unified front of cannabis industry professionals.

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the formation of the WRCBA, the organization is hosting the first ever Regional Cannabis Legislative Policy Conference in Seattle, Washington. At this conference, attendees will hear a policy update from each participating state. Additionally, there will be a federal cannabis policy update from Michael Bronstein of the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp (ATACH).  

As the industry continues to progress, we of the Alliance feel it is important for legal and newly legal states to participate in informed policy discussions. It is the WRCBA’s goal to facilitate this collaboration across state lines in order to cultivate the best cannabis policies possible. At this conference attendees will also hear from state regulators, state legislators and congressional members.
