James O’Dowd

European Alliance for Medicinal Cannabis

James established the European Alliance for Medicinal Cannabis (EAMC) in February 2019 with the central aim of promoting a sensible policy towards medicinal cannabis in the EU27. Prior to establishing EAMC, in his capacity as Managing Director of TPA Research, James advised several firms on the regulatory landscape governing medicinal cannabis in several European markets, no two of which were alike. Prior to joining TPA as a government affairs analyst in 2012, James worked in the European Parliament as a political adviser and head of research to Vice-Chairman of the European Conservatives and Reformists Group, Geoffrey Van Orden MEP.
