100 Cambridgeside Place

1. We are calling on all active cannabis users, join us! MRCC is assembling a coalition of active cannabis consumers and locally operated small businesses to further a higher standard of cannabis products in the regulated market.

The Cambridge 5k Freedom Run is a race through East Cambridge hosted by the Cambridge Business Association, sponsored by several local brewing companies. They run for “Freedom and Local Beer.”

The Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council, MRCC, will participate in this years Cambridge 5k Freedom Run, representing legal cannabis consumers in our state. We run for “Freedom and Local Weed” to remove the “lazy stoner” stigma and promote home grown, local canna-businesses, and education.

MRCC recognizes the societal benefits provided by access to safe, high quality marijuana products, education, and the need for an equitable market where medium and small sized businesses can thrive. We pledge to continue to address legislators at the state and local level to ensure that these public standards are upheld.

Help us create this change, run on our team.
