You’ve heard of 4/20, but what about 7/10? MRCC & MassCann/NORML invite the MA cannabis community to an amazing Boston venue for an evening of networking with local cannabis vendors, live artist performances, interactive cannabis workshops, and expert panel discussions dedicated to consumer education and bringing seemingly disparate communities together.

4. Westport Community Forum on the Inclusion of Cannabis Agriculture

MONDAY
June 23 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM 
Westport Free Public Library
408 Old County Rd, Westport, MA 02790
Cost: FREE

In November 2016, a majority of Massachusetts voters approved adult use (a.k.a. recreational) marijuana, including 52.8% of Westport residents. On May 7th, the Town of Westport narrowly voted to implement a ban cannabis establishments, including cannabis farms by less than 40 votes at 118-82. 

The farming community of Westport stands to benefit immensely from the cultivation sector of this booming new industry. Local residents are invited to this public informational session to learn more about the importance of the inclusion of cannabis agriculture in Westport, MA and how we can participate in this economic opportunity.

Hosted by Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council, Between The Rows, and Home Grown Academy
