Coalition Launches Campaign For Interstate Cannabis Commerce

Cannabis industry groups have partnered to create the Alliance for Sensible Markets, a non-profit coalition of business and advocacy leaders committed to establishing a sustainable legal cannabis industry. The coalition aims to “right the economics of legal cannabis by legalizing commerce between participating legal markets under interstate agreement in 2021.”

The Alliance for Sensible Markets plans to push for interstate commerce in two steps: campaigning governors of at least two legal or legalizing states to agree to an interstate compact to regulate commerce between them and pushing Congress for cannabis approval in 2021.

An interstate compact would set out the broad regulatory parameters of interstate commerce in cannabis, particularly as they concern public safety, meaning testing, tracking, and labeling. For example, multiple acceptable testing standards could be recognized in the compact, and individual states would be free to choose among them.
