About Us

6+ Years ofPatient Advocacy

At UPC, we are a team of passionate individuals who believe that all patients deserve access to whole plant medicine to improve their quality of life. We are dedicated to tirelessly advocating for patient rights, protecting their access to natural treatments, and defending their freedom of choice.

Since our inception in 2017 as a political issue committee (PIC), we have been focused on creating positive change for patients in Utah. Through our efforts to gather signatures and engage with lawmakers, we have successfully influenced policy decisions and made a real impact on the lives of patients.

We are proud of the progress we have made together, and we will continue to advocate, negotiate, and collaborate with others to make a difference for patients in Utah and beyond.

Committed to Patients

The Utah PatientsSubsidy Program

We are dedicated to improving the lives of patients in Utah by advocating for natural, safe, and effective treatments. We recognize that the cost of medical cannabis can be a financial burden for many patients, which is why we created the Utah Patient Subsidy Program. This program is made possible by the commitment and generosity of local Utah business leaders, including medical professionals, manufacturers, and retail pharmacies.  Our subsidy program is an integral part of our mission to support the needs of medical cannabis patients and improve the overall quality of care in Utah.

Take Action

We invite you to join us in our mission to legalize plant medicine and improve the health and wellbeing of Utah’s communities. Together, we can make a difference and create a brighter, healthier future for all patients.
