It has been more than two years since 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.

He previously served as an executive with PepsiCo, as treasurer of Staples, and as President and C.O.O. of Eastern Mountain Sports.
