The legalization of cannabis in Massachusetts means much more than access to the plant for those who want it: Legalization brings opportunities not just for the consumer, but for people from all types and levels of professional experience, regardless of their past with the plant. But for many hopeful industry participants and entrepreneurs, real financial and social capital barriers exist when it comes to business ownership in the Commonwealth’s legal cannabis industry.
Please join ELEVATE Northeast for a timely discussion with a panel of front-line cannabis industry specialists about the Social Equity and Economic Empowerment programs implemented by the Cannabis Control Commission to actively engage Blacks, Latinos, women, veterans, and other traditionally marginalized groups in meaningful participation as licensed business owners.
1. Facilitate an engaging and comprehensive review of training and business support opportunities available through Massachusetts' Adult-Use Marijuana Social Equity Program
2. Discuss and measure the Massachusetts cannabis equity program's outcomes
3. Provide action steps for attendees to support the Commonwealth's efforts to build sustainable pathways for individuals and businesses into the regulated cannabis industry
4. Educate the community of viable economic empowerment opportunities in the state with the largest concentrated number of approved adult-use cannabis license applications
