Six Cannabis Groups Supporting Equality In The Booming Industry Honored On 'National Nonprofit Day'
By Joana Scopel for Benzinga
Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is a large and well-established nonprofit with a long list of historical policy changes under its belt. Not only do they advocate for the rights of medical cannabis patients at the federal and state level, but they also built the world’s first International Cannabis and Cannabinoid Institute. They support medical professionals and patients by offering accredited education programs, as well.
ASA arose to support safe, legal access to cannabis for both research and therapy. Founded in 2002 by marijuana patient Steph Sherer as an advocacy vehicle for other patients, ASA has since grown to include over 150,000 active supporters in all 50 states, including medical professionals, scientists, and everyday stoners.
