Critical Update:

We have had to make the very hard decision to move our 2022 National Medical Cannabis Conference online. Due to many circumstances beyond our control, we could not move forward with the in-person conference and still protect our patient population. As a non-profit patient organization, we must always keep our patients' health as our number one priority.

However, we will be hosting the conference panels as an online webinar from December 12-14. We will also be holding an in-person lobby day and awards ceremony in the spring. Be sure to look out for more info on that in the new year. 

If you booked a hotel room, please make sure to cancel it as soon as possible. You have up to 72 hours before the event to cancel your hotel room with no fees. The phone number for the Omni Shoreham is: (202) 234-0700.

We hope you will still join us online December 12-14 for the panels from Unity 2022 as well as some of the exciting plans ASA will be working on in 2023. Check out the new agenda!

We thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we navigate through these changes. Please understand we had to do what was best for our patients. For immediate questions, please reach out to [email protected].


Join us for our 10th annual National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference! 

ASA was founded in 2002 to give voice to the needs of medical cannabis patients. Over the last 20 years, ASA has brought together patients, policy experts, public health experts, attorneys, lobbyists, scientists, industry associations, and medical professionals to create the campaigns, projects, and programs that have broken down political, social, academic, and legal barriers across the world!

While the conference will be celebrating how far we have come, we will also be sharing strategies to overcome the final hurdles to safe access. Currently there are 48 states and 5 territories with some form of access. However, 13 states only allow low-THC or CBD only, and 2 states (Idaho and Nebraska) do not allow any form of access. Medical cannabis also remains illegal federally, keeping these treatments out of reach for millions of Americans.

Come celebrate with us as we highlight past accomplishments, discuss current issues that remain, and look to the future of a world we envision in which patients, no matter where they live or what condition they have, will have access to safe and affordable cannabis-based therapeutics.  Let’s continue this journey together!
