Event description


Tickets are $15 online through eventbrite and $25 at the door.

Expect the unexpected as the Cannabis Society in partnership with Smith, Costello & Crawford Public Policy Law Group provides a deep dive into the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission’s recently released draft adult use regulations.

What do these regulations mean for Massachusetts and its expanding cannabis industry? What do they mean for me?

These and many other questions will be answered by Cannabis Society President Michael Latulippe and Jay Youmans, a primary author of the Commonwealth's medical use of marijuana regulations and Principal of Smith, Costello & Crawford.

This event will cover the Commission’s new draft regulations including new license types, security requirements, priority applications, delivery, social consumption and much more. If you're interested in understanding what the new draft regulations contain this is not going to be the event to miss.

With the last chance to provide public comment to the Cannabis Control Commission being February 15th, All Good Things was developed to give the community the tools to understand the proposed regulations and provide relevant feedback to the Commissioners before the regulations are finalized.

Cannabis Society's event partner for this event is Smith Costello & Crawford, Massachusetts’ premier cannabis policy firm.

The food and beverage sponsor for this event is Revolutionary Clinics a brand new medical cannabis dispensary open in Somerville.

If you're interested in sponsoring the event as well contact core@cansociety.com for more information.

Food & Beverages will be provided including our group's favorite beverage sparkling fruit San Pellegrino.
