Community Conversation: Understanding the Cannabis Industry

The Democracy Center
45 Mount Auburn St, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138,
Cost: $10

The regulations for the Adult-Use cannabis industry have been finalized. These provisions will affect how marijuana businesses operate, guidelines consumers must follow, and how our industry plans to unfold within the next few years. It’s important for our communities to fully understand these protocols to ensure compliance in Massachusetts.

Join MRCC for a conversation led by Yes On 4 Campaign Director Will Luzier and MassCann/NORML Director Shannon Jones as they break down the most important changes to the recreational marijuana program.

We will also be joined by State Rep. Mike Connolly as a keynote speaker to touch on Cannabis legislation at the state house.

We’re assembling an expert panel discussion on the nuances of this soon-to-bloom industry. This event will provide an in-depth examination of final regulations, approaches of various municipalities and how the Commonwealth plans to move forward with addressing equity.
