Professional> Cannabis Business Association (CBA)

The Cannabis Business Association aims to educate students on the business opportunities and challenges in the emerging cannabis industry. It accomplishes this goal through unique professional access to entrepreneurs in the field, experiential educational events and social gatherings. The club is free to join, and offers an opportunity for students to explore an emerging, nontraditional industry that the UCLA administration is excited to support.
