The Global Alliance for Cannabis Commerce (GACC) advocates in front of government policymakers and legislators to support legalizing and regulating the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, and use of medical and adult use cannabis products globally.
Goal 1: Legalize and Regulate Cannabis Commerce Globally
Governments must de-schedule cannabis from their respective controlled substance acts; provide a pathway for legalizing extant businesses and assets; permit the free trade of cannabis; and tax cannabis businesses like any other business. GACC supports such legislative efforts as the MORE Act, States Reform Act, CAO Act, and SAFE Banking Act.
Goal 2: Incubate a Vibrant and Competitive Industry
The Alliance is committed to educating the public and policymakers about medical and adult use cannabis, which dates back to as early as 3000 B.C. Modern science has definitively shown that cannabis has a substantial role a as safe medical product and adult-use substance.
Goal 3: Ensure Patient and Adult User Access
Millions of individuals use cannabis on a daily basis and as laws and regulations progress in this space, it is critical to ensure patients and consumers have access to reliable and safe cannabis. Backed by medical professionals and increasingly available scientific data, the Alliance’s efforts to destigmatize cannabis support its public policy mission.
