ASA CA State Conference: Implementation = Victory: Preparing for the Next Ten Years

Americans for Safe Access is pleased to announce that our 2nd State Conference will take place January 13th and 14th at the Pickwick Gardens Conference Center, 1001 Riverside Drive in Burbank, California.

As the momentum grows around medical cannabis law implementation throughout the state, open communication amongst the players, both regionally and statewide, has become crucial. For this reason, ASA staff will bring its key assets to the table in a series of workshops and seminars designed to give activists the skills they need to achieve effective statewide campaigns while providing a vehicle for local campaigns to flourish.

This is a participatory, not panel based, conference. Every aspect of the agenda is intended to make the most of the skills and resources you already have, while providing you the direct, one-on-one support of some of the brightest minds in medical marijuana advocacy from ASA Chapters, Allies and Friends. You will have opportunities to interact directly with presenters who are forming the state and national strategy for medical marijuana, network with other activists like yourself from around the state, and work on local strategies with activists from your region using the ASA toolbox.

ASA State Campaign Staff will be presenting the California Campaign for Safe Access Strategy, covering issues from regulations and protecting safe access, implementation of the ID card program, sales tax and the Board of Equalization, and regional participation in the implementation of SB420, Proposition 215 and precedent setting case law.

Details will be available soon, including Conference Agenda, Key Note Speakers, possible group bus travel, discounted lodging, and more! For more information, please contact Alex at or (510) 251-1856 x 321.

Please be part of the solution. Register now for the ASA Conference and use this space to expedite full implementation of our state medical marijuana laws in every city and county in California.
