The National Cannabis Policy is a not-for-profit initiative of the Cannabis and Hemp Association (CHA), the first true Non-Governmental Organization in the cannabis industry cultivating a civil society around cannabis. The NCP was developed as a way to streamline economic development in sovereign states and nations interested in benefiting off of cannabis. The efficacy of cannabis is often looked at with skepticism for it's chemical psychoactive potency, with many believing it's potential outside of a recreational drug are overblown. Due to this general point of view, those territories that are in favor, ready to invest, and aggressive will have a major opportunity to capitalize. Cannabis will be the largest agricultural crop in the world in the next 50 years. The CHA is a sustainable living company, we believe cannabis can provide a baseline crop at the cornerstone of food, clothing, shelter, and medicine.
We strongly believe that the territories leading this development will be in position to reap the benefit from any number emerging industries such as:
1. Ecologically superior construction and design.
2. Medical tourism.
3. Alternative currencies.
4. Off-shore banking.
5. Botanical Drug Products.
6. Plant based medicine (Ayurveda medicines)
7. Integrative nutrition.
8. Energy efficiency.
9. Bio-based and recycled fibres.
10. Drug and alcohol treatment reform and rehabilitation.
Whether a territory reaps the financial rewards and to what degree of success they have will depend on how the policy and development are implemented.
The Cannabis and Hemp Association (CHA) advises and develops National Cannabis Policies all over the world. We believe in custom political solutions, much like is being rolled out globally, which each US State adopting it's own laws. We highly advise each sovereign state or nation to consider the unique needs of their community before rolling out a boiler-plate policy. To make this easier for our clients we have developed a survey to help understand the needs of their territory, it can be found by clicking HERE or scrolling to the "National Cannabis Policy" tab, located under the "Contribute" tab, hovering over it, then clicking "Initial Interview Survey".
The global focus and inviting mission to bring the industry and community together globally made assisting countries and sovereign states a priority.
Unique access to global resources, human capital, and investors the CHA has accumulated have made architecting territorial-scale projects feasible and scalable.
The CHA specializes in territory development and sustainable living, we teach nations the value of the licensure process, show them how to attract hospitals, colleges, energy providers, manufacturers, hotels, residents, etc. by using the license.
We preach the value of expediency and education. In every territory there are varying degrees of urgency and cannabis literacy within their individual communities. All strategies are tailor made to the community, there is no boiler plate model, due to nearly 100 years of stigmatization against the commodity itself.
On January 17, 2015 Founder Scott Giannotti released an open letter to Native American tribes, stating the CHA's interest in assisting in the development of Native American territories. The CHA is currently negotiating actively with dozens of tribes across the USA.
