Patients will be facing many policy issues this year. The code that directs the medical marijuana industry is up for sunset review. Bills affecting caregivers, doctors and patients are in the pipeline. It’s important that the elected officials making policy know who those decisions will affect and how.
“With so much at stake this session,” said Founder and Executive Director, Teri Robnett, “we want to make sure our elected officials know that the policy decisions they make will affect real patients.”
Rather than being limited to 2 or 3 minutes at the microphone during a hearing, this is an opportunity to put a face to what it means to be a medical marijuana patient in Colorado and discuss issues they face every day. Patients will be available to tell their personal stories and share their experiences in a respectful and supportive environment.
Cannabis Patients Alliance, founded by Teri Robnett (Rx MaryJane), is an alliance of patients, organizations, businesses, advocates, activists and supporters from Colorado and across the country who work together to protect and advance the rights of patients who choose to use medical cannabis (marijuana) to treat whatever condition they may have. We support safe, legal, affordable access to medical marijuana in whatever way works best for the patient, whether that’s home growing, caregivers, the medical marijuana industry, or the retail marijuana industry, and access should be available through any and all of those means.
CPA’s core mission is two-fold: advocate for good public policy regarding the rights and needs of medical cannabis patients as well as cannabis consumers overall, and educate elected officials, policy-makers, law enforcement, medical professionals and the public about the medicinal benefits of marijuana.

Cannabis Patients Alliance is currently in the process of attaining 501(c)4 recognition from the IRS as a nonprofit Social Welfare Organization.
