The International Cannabis Bar Association

INCBA was founded in 2015 in San Francisco, California by a group of visionary attorneys who recognized the absence of a professional association for attorneys who practiced cannabis law. Since then, INCBA has become the world's leading resource for cannabis law education, and community.Our purpose is "to educate and connect cannabis industry lawyers for the purpose of providing excellent, ethical, and advanced legal assistance to this growing industry."We accomplish this by:

  • Producing top-tier educational programs accredited for continuing legal education (CLE) credit, including our seminal annual Cannabis Law Institutesm;

  • Maintaining a robust library of resources to facilitate the practice of cannabis law, available only to our members;

  • Facilitating an ethics hotline and other resources to help attorneys navigate the complex ethical rules applicable to the industry;

  • Advocating for improvements in law and policy that legalize cannabis and clarify the legal landscape applicable to our members and their clients;

  • Hosting engaging social events for members and stakeholders throughout the globe; and

  • Supporting the development of future cannabis lawyers.

Originally established as the National Cannabis Bar Association, the organization was rebranded as the International Cannabis Bar Association in 2019 to reflect the global nature of the cannabis industry and the expansion of our membership and programming beyond the United States. We invite you to learn more about INCBA by taking a stroll through the rest of our website, joining or becoming a sponsor, and becoming an active part of our community.
