1. Monson Vote YES to Small, Local Co-op Cannabis Farming


MONDAY November 4, 2019 @ 7:00pm-9:00pm

Granite Valley Middle School
21 Thompson St.
Monson, MA 01057

Registered Monson Voters: Join us for the Monday, 11/4 Town Meeting, to VOTE IN the ability for our small local farmers to cultivate cannabis via a co-op (cooperative) license.

Raging Acres Farms in Monson believes that cannabis entrepreneurial opportunities are not just for out-of-state millionaires. And we know The People want access to more than warehouse weed.

The farm is where our plants are grown, and no one grows a cleaner, more beautiful sungrown organic plant than your small, local farmer.

We need your vote, Monson. That's the only way we can get this done. Tell your friends, come to this meeting, and vote to support your small local farms!

**Note: We will be asking the Town Meeting moderator for vote by Secret Ballot, so that your votes will remain anonymous. **
