California's licensed cannabis industry, united in finding fact-based solutions to vaping-related illness

About Us

LCCS is a united coalition of California's largest licensed cannabis growers, manufacturers, retailers, testing labs, associations, advocates, and marketplaces.

We are committed to understanding the causes of pulmonary illness associated with vaping, referred to as EVALI or VAPI, and implementing fact-based actions to ensure consumer health and safety.

Resources for Regulators + Media

Californians have purchased over 31 million legal cannabis vapes since January 2018. As stewards of this supply chain, LCCS is the go-to resource for regulators, health officials, communities, and the news media seeking to understand the legal market, heighten the safety of cannabis vaping, and mitigate the risks posed by illegal operators.
