Capitol Advocacy is uniquely positioned as one of California’s only full-service and statewide cannabis lobbying firms.
California’s cannabis industry is dynamic. With the state’s regulatory framework in full effect, the industry is going through a transformation. Whether it be an out-of-state business looking to enter California’s market or a local operator looking to expand its presence in the state, Capitol Advocacy will provide the necessary strategic planning and guidance to achieve a successful outcome.
Capitol Advocacy is uniquely positioned as one of California’s only full-service and statewide cannabis lobbying firms. Together with our strategic partners in Southern California, we provide comprehensive local and state licensing advocacy and regulatory services that have helped cannabis businesses small and large succeed in California’s newly regulated adult-use cannabis market.
Our staff includes a former Gubernatorial appointee as Director for the California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA), which implemented the state’s regulatory structure prior to the creation of the Department of Cannabis Control. The cannabis industry touches over 10 state departments and 8 committees in the Legislature, all of which our firm has a close relationship with, ranging from the Department of Public Health to the State Water Resources Control Board to the Department of Tax and Fee Administration. Our firm has relationships with all of them.
