Why Join ACS?


ACS is an international association of healthcare professionals on the forefront of cannabinoid medicine.  Founded by physicians, ACS is uniquely positioned to advocate for the highest standards in the practice of cannabis medicine and safeguard patient care.

We are an advocacy organization striving to provide guidance to law makers and regulators at every level of cannabis control. 

For all of ACS’ constituents, we provide evidence and experience-based education to support the premise that cannabis should be treated as a medicine and, therefore, patients and related laws and regulations need to be created, modified, and viewed differently than recreational-use laws and regulations.
