Ship in a Bottle – Getting your Brand into a Cannabis Dispensary: Our good friends at Cannabis Society will have, Sage, a Massachusetts Medical Dispensary explain how to get your brand inside an entity similar to theirs. Currently Massachusetts only has medical dispensaries, these entities are vertically integrated and operate as non-profits. Vertical integration means all production is under one entity: retail, plant production, edible production. We will be putting more information out about recreational licenses, stay on the lookout.

4. The Global Marijuana March happens every year all over the world! The first legal Boston Global Marijuana March is happening May 6th. We are blessed to say here in MA that we won! However the fight is far from over. Testing regulations to make sure that dispensary product being sold is pesticide-free and mold-free have not yet been established. Home-grow laws could be changed. Education is still necessary. So come march to protect Question 4!
