Angeles Emeralds is primarily composed of stake holders such as cannabis patients and cannabis business owners, in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. Below are some of the partners we have invited to work with us towards stopping the ban and regulating cannabis.
The first partner to join our cause. When others told us it couldn't be done, CCIA stepped up to help us.
The mission of the California Cannabis Industry Association (CCIA) is to be a leading force in the growth and health of California’s cannabis industry.
CCIA was formed to unite the cannabis industry in California and to allow it to speak with one voice at the state and local levels. They strive to educate and act as a resource to lawmakers regarding all areas of the cannabis industry. They are also dedicated to addressing issues related to driving under the influence, unlawful diversion to minors, and substance abuse.

The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the nation's leading organization promoting drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights.
Their supporters are individuals who believe the war on drugs is doing more harm than good. Together they advance policies that reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition, and seek solutions that promote safety while upholding the sovereignty of individuals over their own minds and bodies. They work to ensure that our nation’s drug policies no longer arrest, incarcerate, disenfranchise and otherwise harm millions – particularly young people and people of color who are disproportionately affected by the war on drugs.
DPA has been working side by side with us in educating the Board of Supervisors on all aspects of Cannabis regulation.
The Los Angeles Cannabis Task Force is dedicated to creating a fair and vibrant cannabis industry in the City of Los Angeles by establishing a safe, lawful, and responsible local licensing system that aligns with the business and license categories authorized by California state law.
Most of the changes being made to the City of Los Angeles' cannabis regulations are due to the efforts by the Task Force. Measure M which is up for vote on March 7, 2017, is the fruit of the efforts.
We proudly stand with our counterparts in the City of Los Angeles and in Los Angeles County.
