Americans for Safe Access believes that when patients and concerned citizens are involved at the highest levels of policy making, everyone benefits. Therefore, it is imperative to give advocates the tools and information they need to competently and confidently represent. This conference strives to connect medical cannabis patients and advocates and promote excellence in our work. Participants will leave educated, inspired, and carrying a tool kit for achieving immediate results.


The National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference is the largest conference for medical marijuana patients, activists, lawyers and medical professionals promoting safe and legal access to marijuana for therapeutic uses and research.  The Unity conference is your place to learn best practices, exchange ideas and learn how to navigate medical marijuana in this new political landscape. This conference will also provide professional development and leadership training to patients and concerned citizens in all areas of advocacy including federal, state and local government relations, public affairs, community relations, public policy, legislation, Congressional relations, community activism, political engagement and campaigns. Attendees will hear from successful lobbyists and communicators, elected officials, professional staff, industry experts, and public policy specialists on a wide variety of how-to topics relevant to legislative and regulatory advocacy.
