1. Dark Matters Appreciation Party

Boston, MA

Cost: $15

Greetings. I‘d like to take this opportunity to invite you to the inaugural DARK MATTERS Appreciation Party!

15% of the proceeds will go to MRCC. The rest will fund the movement because stuff costs money! We here at Dark Matters couldn’t function without invaluable community assets who are actually doing great work in our neighborhoods. We felt it necessary to incorporate all our multifaceted friends, families, & business associates because all we got is us...

Vendor tables, art for sale, headshots, music and food will be available. It will be a memorable experience to say the least.

For any questions, contact me at

2. SAVE THE DATE: Show up to the Cannabis Control Commission Public Meetings!

THURSDAY December 19, 2019, 10:00am

Location TBA (Worcester, MA)

If you've ever complained about big businesses gobbling up the cannabis industry, or a lack of people of color and women in leadership positions, or that the criminal expungement process is too slow, or the costs of recreational weed & taxes being too high--it's time to SHOW UP!

As a citizen and a constituent, you are entitled to make your voice heard and speak your grievances directly to the Cannabis Control Commission. Tell them WHAT kind of industry you want and HOW you want them to create it. The Commission meets regularly in public locations throughout Boston. It's never too late to come in person and advocate for yourself!

As always, if you can't make the meeting you can catch our Facebook Livestream! Follow us there for more updates.

After brunch, we’ll visit Alternative Therapies Group in Salisbury, MA, for our canna-boutique experience to learn about their business. As VIP guests, we will skip the lines to shop with a budtender exclusive to Live Lilium attendees.
