COVID-19

As a group serving medical cannabis patients, we are enormously concerned about the impacts of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on our communities. Patients are at greater risk for a variety of reasons so we are working to ensure that the needs of patients are taken into account by those responding to COVID-19.

This page compiles our resources on COVID-19 including our recommendations for patients, policy recommendations, real-time feedback from our community, our research on state responses, and a way for our advocates to make their voices heard.
