Definition - What does American Medical Marijuana Association (AMMA) mean?
The American Medical Marijuana Association (AMMA) is a volunteer organization that was formed by Steve Kubby, Ed Rosenthal, and Tod H. Mikuriya in 1999. AMMA was formed to promote legal marijuana and to protect the legal access to it. It was officially founded and established on the Internet in October 2000.
The American Medical Marijuana Association has been one of the pioneer organizations to protect the rights of medical marijuana patients. Recently, it received recognition officially by the United States Government, which stated that the AMMA was one of the top websites to promote law reform for medical cannabis.

The American Medical Marijuana Association website features comprehensive information about medical cannabis’s many health applications including its cancer-fighting properties that patients can provide their health professional.
Volunteers in the association work together to preserve, protect, and implement the rights of medical marijuana patients through activism. They operate under the principle of human rights, and each patient and physician can determine what course of action is right for them individually. Activism includes aiding in legal defense of patient by sharing successful writs, motions, demands, and declarations.
Another goal of the AMMA is to maintain California Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act of 1996. Many of the activities the association organizes are based out of California, but AMMA also supports out-of-state efforts.
