About the Sonoma County Cannabis Alliance


The Sonoma County Cannabis Alliance (formerly the Sonoma County Growers Alliance - SCGA) is a grassroots nonprofit group organized to educate, collaborate and advocate around personal, operator, and community rights and responsibilities in the cannabis space.

We work cooperatively with individuals, businesses, and regulatory bodies to educate our members and the community and to ensure that reasonable environmental, social and economic standards are set in place, helping cannabis operators within the community to participate and succeed in the regulated cannabis marketplace.

SCCAlliance brings together industry leaders from a variety of fields and sectors of the supply chain to educate and activate operators and community members. Our diverse supporter base includes cultivators, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, labs, patients, service providers, and neighbors.


The mission of the Sonoma County Cannabis Alliance is to develop and preserve reasonable environmental, social, and economic standards regarding cannabis in our community, and to support individuals and businesses working in this space. We work collaboratively with regulatory bodies and stakeholder groups to advocate for policy changes at the local and state level that allow responsible operators to succeed and thrive. 


The Sonoma County Cannabis Alliance was founded in March 2015 as there Sonoma County Growers Alliance in response to the changes sweeping the cannabis industry. In our years as a grassroots nonprofit, we have:

    • Engaged with local and state representatives to help guide and implement Sonoma County cannabis policy.
    • Created working relationships with organizations across the county and state to facilitate an action network to expedite progress.
    • Empowered our community to create the solutions that will transition cannabis operators into an exemplary regulated industry.
    • Created informative workshops to educate both local operators and regulators on the best management practices for the cannabis industry.
    • Produced monthly social mixers and events to engage our local businesses and stimulate the networking within our local economy.
    • Collaborated with the Origins Council and its Regional Partner organizations on statewide lobbying efforts.
    • Rebranded to the Sonoma County Cannabis Alliance to reflect how we advocate and support all industry members, not just cultivators.
