New Massachusetts Cannabis Law – What it Means




August 17, 2017 12:30PM–1:30PM


Governor Charlie Baker has recently signed a bill that substantially reworks the voter-approved 2016 referendum legalizing a regulated market for adult-use cannabis – and now licensing of adult use establishments is just eight short months away.

Join Foley Hoag on Thursday, August 17 at 12:30 PM EDT for a webinar that will examine the recent changes to the Massachusetts regulatory framework for both medical and adult use operators enacted by the Legislature in its omnibus cannabis legislation, Chapter 55 of the Acts of 2017.

Topics to be Discussed

  • The registration and licensing process for cannabis businesses in Massachusetts;
  • The process that medical marijuana entities will need to follow to convert from a non-profit entity to a for-profit entity; and
  • What we anticipate in the months ahead from the Commonwealth’s newest regulator, the Cannabis Control Commission.
