CannaRegs offering demo of map and enhanced state regulation tracking services at NCIA’s Cannabis Business Summit
DENVER, June 9, 2016 /Weed Wire/ — The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), in partnership with association members CannaRegs and New Frontier, announce the launch of a new State-by-State Marijuana Policies Map, providing a valuable, regularly updated overview of every state’s approach to cannabis and cannabis markets. This free resource, now available on NCIA’s website, will enable NCIA members and people interested in joining the cannabis industry to stay up-to-date with each state’s cannabis regulations and market size estimates.
The interactive map provides policy information compiled by CannaRegs, a web-based subscription service that provides enhanced access to all cannabis-related rules and regulations. The map’s information includes medical and adult-use laws, as well as the number of licenses for cannabis cultivations, dispensaries, manufacturers, and testing labs allowed and issued in the state, fee structures for applications and licenses, residency requirements, and qualifying medical conditions for patients.
The CannaRegs team will be on hand to demo the new feature, as well as their enhanced subscription services, at NCIA’s 3rd annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo, June 20-22, in Oakland, California. To help NCIA further promote the growth of a responsible and legitimate cannabis industry, CannaRegs is also offering a 15% discount on its subscription service to all NCIA member businesses.
The map also includes current medical and adult-use sales estimates, as well as projected sales for the year 2020, provided by New Frontier, the industry analysis firm which publishes The State of Legal Marijuana Markets and other reports.
The information is updated as changes are made to regulations and more data becomes available. NOTE: This information is provided for educational purposes only and is not legal advice or substitute for legal counsel.
“CannaRegs is excited to partner with NCIA in the creation and maintenance of the regulation map,” said Amanda Ostrowitz, founder of CannaRegs. “We are thrilled to help facilitate a service that will enable NCIA members to acquaint themselves with the regulatory landscapes of all 50 states. As the industry continues to evolve, it will become increasingly apparent that regulatory compliance is the foundation of successful businesses, and that easy access to all the law and regulation will be increasingly critical. As the laws continue to evolve the map will too so check back in often.”
“Thanks to the information provided by CannaRegs and New Frontier, visitors to the NCIA website now have a wealth of information at their fingertips,” said NCIA executive director Aaron Smith. “The cannabis industry is highly regulated and incredibly complicated, but our new map hits some of the most critical categories to give cannabis entrepreneurs and policymakers a valuable primer on markets across the nation.”
The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) is the largest cannabis trade association in the U.S. and the only organization representing cannabis-related businesses at the national level. NCIA promotes the growth of a responsible and legitimate cannabis industry and works toward a favorable social, economic, and legal environment for that industry in the United States.
