I received the following alert out of Massachusetts:
The Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) is planning a series of “Listening Sessions” across the state in October and November. The CCC’s goal is to “hear from members of the public regarding the content of future proposed regulations regarding adult use of marijuana.”
Please try to attend and speak at one of the sessions. It is likely that legalization opponents will show up and advocate for restrictive regulations that would harm the rollout of a safe, effective legalization system. We need as many legalization supporters as possible to balance the opposition messaging and to call on the CCC to meet their deadlines.
The listening sessions are listed below. Use this link to find the address for each event.
Oct. 4 — HOLYOKE: Holyoke Community College at 10 a.m.
Oct. 5 — HYANNIS: Barnstable Town Hall at 10:30 a.m.
Oct. 6 — ROXBURY: Bolling Municipal Building in Roxbury at 8:30 a.m.
Oct. 10 — VINEYARD HAVEN: West Tisbury Public Library at 10:30 a.m.
Oct. 11 — WORCESTER: Worcester Public Library at 10 a.m.
Oct. 12 — BOSTON: McCormack State Office Building at 9 a.m.
Oct. 13 — PITTSFIELD: Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield at 1 p.m.
