Economic Empowerment Application Workshop for Cannabis Entrepreneurs on April 11
This Wednesday night, the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission will host an Economic Empowerment Application Workshop for Cannabis Entrepreneurs. This workshop is designed for people who are from communities disproportionately impacted by high rates of drug enforcement and are interested in starting a marijuana business.
Participants will learn about Economic Empowerment Priority Applicant certification criteria and the benefits of the Social Equity Program. Volunteers will review various license types, the licensing timeline, and what’s next for the adult use marijuana industry. Attendees will also receive assistance navigating the application for Economic Empowerment Applicant certification from industry volunteers. Read more about the Workshop here>>
