Do you want to get into the cannabis industry, but lack money or resources? Gather friends and start a co-op: become your own boss and own your labor! Cooperatives are worker owned businesses. In Massachusetts Marijuana cooperatives are licensed to cultivate, obtain, manufacture, process, package and brand cannabis or marijuana products to transport marijuana to Marijuana Establishments.
Join the Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council, MRCC, and distinguished friends August 31st at Democracy Brewing for a lively discussion on co-ops in the #weed industry. Democracy Brewing, is a worker-owned brewery and pub committed to making great beers and supporting our community. “We believe the dream of owning your own business should be attainable to everyone and the majority of folks who work should be able to enjoy the profit and pride that comes with ownership.”
