Intro image - Parabola Center staff smiling

Parabola Center for Law and Policy is proud to announce our partnership with over 100 leading small companies and organizations who represent what the cannabis industry should look like. This partnership allows select organizations to join us in supporting policy solutions at the federal level that prevent marijuana monopolies and support a fair, competitive marketplace.

Our Partners represent some of the most innovative and successful independent businesses and organizations in the country, and they play a key role in fulfilling the Parabola Center's purpose of uplifting real businesses owned by everyday people, not massive corporations.

We ask Partners to contribute $50/month (waived for nonprofits) and certify that they:

  • support the right to grow cannabis at home
  • have not called for criminal crackdowns on the unregulated market, and
  • are not funded by Big Tobacco, Big Alcohol, or Big Pharma.

If you believe in a competitive marketplace where small businesses and the historically disenfranchised can thrive in the legal cannabis industry, contact us to learn more and join our work as one of our Parabola Partners:

Join us!
