WHO WE ARE

VS Strategies is the policy and public affairs consulting affiliate of Vicente Sederberg LLP, the nation's preeminent cannabis law practice. The two firms are independent, but we work closely and collaborate frequently on client projects and other strategic initiatives.

 

VSS is not just another lobbying and public relations firm that decided to jump into the cannabis space. We are experts in cannabis policy and advocacy, and we have an unparalleled track record in these fields. For more than a decade, our team members have been changing minds and changing laws, rolling back prohibition policies and advancing the cannabis industry in a dynamic and responsible manner. 

Our core services include:

  • Advocacy & Campaigns

  • Government Affairs

  • Policy Guidance & Tracking

  • Research & Analysis

  • Strategic Communications

 

Our clients include businesses, trade associations, government bodies, and other organizations and individuals seeking to shape public opinion and implement the most effective cannabis laws and regulations.

We have roots in the drug policy reform movement, and that activist spirit and commitment to the common good remain central to our work and company culture. We are eager to work with organizations and individuals who share our passion for enacting effective cannabis and other drug policies, and we know what it takes to get the job done.
