Massachusetts voters legalized recreational marijuana in the Commonwealth and
more than six years since medical marijuana was legalized here. Bob Mayerson, senior executive with Patriot
Care, a company with three marijuana dispensaries in Massachusetts, including
one in Greenfield, will give an overview of the industry, how legal sales for medical and recreational marijuana
have worked in other states, notably
California and Colorado, and how investors are navigating the evolving
regulatory systems here in Massachusetts.
