American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) received the Patient Partnership Award from Americans for Safe Access (ASA) on Oct. 16. AHPA was honored with the award after developing recommendations for medical cannabis regulation. In 2010, AHPA formed a cannabis committee to establish responsible commercial guidelines, and it has since worked closely with ASA.

ASA executive director Steph Sherer presented AHPA president Michael McGuffin with the honor at ASA's 10th anniversary dinner and awards ceremony in Washington.

"AHPA has been working closely with ASA over the past year to identify issues that need to be addressed to ensure safe patient access to medical cannabis in the states where its use is allowed under state law," McGuffin said. "Sherer has provided invaluable insight to AHPA's understanding of these issues and has been instrumental in organizing this community."
