The Cannabis Trade Federation (CTF) is a national coalition of cannabis-related businesses that represent all aspects of the industry including cultivators, dispensaries, wholesalers, distributors, and ancillary businesses. CTF is focused on creating a professional, credible, and unified organization for the industry. Along with its member businesses, CTF will also build a dynamic network of associations and nonprofits that share a vision of creating sensible cannabis policy, promoting social responsibility, and leading the future ongoing professionalization of a highly regulated and increasingly organized cannabis industry.
CTF’s primary federal legislative focus will be to build support to pass the STATES Act, which would amend the Controlled Substances Act to exempt state licensed and regulated cannabis businesses from federal enforcement in conflict with state law.
