In support of our non-profits who advocate for patients improving quality of life through cannabis and alternative health we welcome Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance and Bulldozer Health Inc. who are pillars for patient needs. “Massachusetts leads the way in innovation and education, values that drive the Massachusetts cannabis industry,” explained NIC Dean of Faculty, Cara Crabb-Burnham. “It’s time to celebrate and reflect on how far our community has come and where we want to go as we strive for equality and opportunity in the cannabis industry.” Massachusetts voters took a step forward for communities affected by cannabis prohibition, including those incarcerated or otherwise victimized by the War on Drugs, when they voted to pass Question 4 in November 2016. Question 4 language directly addressed this issue, with first-of-its-king language drafted specifically to provide opportunity for equitable ownership and participation by those victims in this industry. “We are not only a community of labels and stereotypes, we are a community that is going to change the world.” Ms. Crabb-Burnham added. The 420 independence Gala takes place on Thursday, April 20 at the Natick Elk’s Lodge, 95 Speen Street in Natick, from 6:00 – 10:00 PM. Public and media are invited to attend.
