The California Cannabis Association
(CCA) is an organization comprised of those involved in the medical marijuana industry. The CCA offers "business contacts and networking opportunities, professional camaraderie and a prominent voice in the political arena" to its members.
The CCA seeks to develop standards and regulations for all those in the industry before legislators create regulations that may not fit the goals of the members.
