Event description

Description

Hosted by the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission (Commission) in partnership with City Awake's Fierce Urgency of Now Festival 2018 #FUNinBOS.

Millennials of Color are invited to learn about opportunities to start, manage, or work in Marijuana Establishments and meet Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission representatives who can share helpful resources for entering the legal, adult-use cannabis market, including the Commission’s first-in-the-nation statewide Social Equity Program.

What Can I Expect?
Participants should expect an engaging event in which they can explore galleries of Afro-American artists and network with other millennials who want to create or support adult-use cannabis businesses. They will hear from keynote speaker Commissioner Shaleen Title, who co-authored Massachusetts’ marijuana legalization referendum and has consulted on marijuana policy around the country.

Commission staff will lead a discussion about the effects of marijuana prohibition on certain communities, the steps Massachusetts is taking to include those who have been disproportionately harmed, as well as the growing entrepreneurial and employment opportunities in Massachusetts. Staff will also be on hand to answer questions for attendees who are thinking about getting involved in the legal industry.

Contact the Cannabis Control Commission if you have questions about The Intersection of Cannabis and Equity.
