ASA works to overcome political and legal barriers by creating policies that improve access to medical cannabis for patients and researchers through legislation, education, litigation, grassroots actions, advocacy and services for patients and the caregivers. ASA has over 30,000 active members with chapters and affiliates in more than 40 states.
Medical cannabis patients and Executive Director Steph Sherer founded ASA in 2002 in response to federal raids on patients in California. Ever since then, ASA has been instrumental in shaping the political and legal landscape of medical cannabis. Our successful lobbying, media, and legal campaigns led to positive court precedents, new sentencing standards, more compassionate legislative and administrative polices and procedures, as well as new legislation.
ASA protects the rights of cannabis patients. We are working to change federal policy to meet the immediate needs of patients as well as create long-term strategies for safe access and programs that encourage research.
We are committed to bringing the highest quality recreational marijuana, marijuana infused edibles and drinks, concentrates, oils, and paraphernalia to every customer that walks through our doors.
We are located in Uptown Village in downtown Vancouver, in a commercially zoned house. That makes our store's style, atmosphere, and accessibility unique and refreshing. Our team is knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.

With the passage of Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA), California’s medical cannabis industry is now moving into a state licensing program. Voters will also be deciding on yet another major regulatory bill, Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) in November. Both laws include robust product safety protocols as well as a new licensing program.

PFC staff will demystify regulatory inspection, help you prepare your business and provide practical steps to reduce company liability with the industry's industry best practices.
