We are a nonprofit action-research think tank based out of Seattle, Washington. Our organization serves as a central node for information about cannabis policy and markets in a wider social context, especially in Washington, Oregon and California.
The Center for the Study of Cannabis and Social Policy collects and produces information about cannabis policy and markets in the context of state-level experiments in democracy directly affected by Legal Cannabis laws, rules, and regulations.
