THE VOICE OF MARIJUANA IN PENNSYLVANIA
The Pennsylvania Cannabis Coalition is a trade organization comprised of Pennsylvania medical marijuana permit holders. PCC formed shortly after the first permits were awarded in June of 2017 through the merger of the most prominent industry advocacy groups.
Our purpose is to protect and preserve Pennsylvania's emerging medical marijuana market while also advocating for a well regulated adult use market in the Commonwealth. We have helped devise policy that regulates the sensible cultivation, distribution, and use of cannabis for medical purposes.
We represent all sectors of the cannabis industry here in Pennsylvania.
We advocate for a robust yet economically sensible regulatory framework. We will continue to educate elected officials, regulators and the general public about of the need and benefits of cannabis-derived therapies.
Our team includes both industry and public affairs specialists with rich, domain-specific experience at the local, state, and federal levels.
Lobbying and Advocacy
First things first, what's the current law and what should the industry expect moving forward? PCC utilizes professional lobbyists and advocates that work with state and local officials to ensure that as the laws evolve, it has a positive impact on jobs, taxes, patient access, and the overall cannabis industry. We recognize that legalizing medical cannabis was not an easy task. There were many hurdles and naysayers. But our work isn't done yet, and there is still a lot more to be done. Our job is to work effectively with a cross-section of leaders in politics, business and communities to modernize Pennsylvania's medical marijuana program as the conversation about adult use cannabis is on the horizon.
