Nelson Guerrero is Executive Director of the Cannabis Cultural Association (CCA). After educating his traditional, Latin family about the benefits of cannabis, Nelson co-founded the CCA in 2016 to end the stigma around cannabis use. A 501(c)(3), the mission of CCA is to educate all people about the benefits of cannabis. CCA emphasizes criminal justice reform, promotes access to medical cannabis, and advocates legalization of cannabis for adult-use. Nelson and the CCA are currently part of a group suing the Attorney General and Drug Enforcement Agency for the removal of cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act. An appeal is currently pending in the Second Circuit.
