Louisiana Association of Therapeutic Alternatives
Through that experience, the LATA founders were exposed to a different way of approaching disease management, utilizing both traditional and non- traditional remedies. LATA was formed to advocate for the implementation of a strong, well-regulated, therapeutic cannabis system that puts medicine and patients first.
However, we are not focused on cannabis as the single therapy for improved health outcomes, but on plant-based medicines, activity, diet, nutrition, social determinants of health, and pharmacist/physician patient care coordination. LATA is committed to uniting best practices from traditional medicine and non-traditional therapies for enhanced patient outcomes. We want to help combat the stigma that surrounds herbal therapies, including medical cannabis, and to help further integrate plant-based medicines within mainstream healthcare.
LATA is supported by legal experts, patient advocates and healthcare leaders as a resource in developing policy which will lead to a healthier Louisiana.
