Massachusetts regulators and the state’s budding cannabis industry face many challenges in meeting aggressive timelines for implementation, while also understanding the implications of federal enforcement policy.
With legal recreational sale expected in July, join us for an in-depth look at the core issues of the newly proposed regulations, the new federal enforcement posture, and the divergent approach of various municipalities as they weigh the pros and cons of legalization.

The Massachusetts Marijuana Summit 2.0 will again bring together leaders in the cannabis industry to provide critical detail and perspective as a new era in Massachusetts becomes closer to reality.
