Policy

CannaBiz of Mass was founded on the principle of strength in numbers. The thousands of Massachusetts businesses involved in our state-legal cannabis industry represent a significant economic force. As the industry’s premier state trade association, CannaBiz of Mass works everyday to ensure our burgeoning business sector is represented in a professional and coordinated way at the state level.

CannaBiz of Mass enjoys an exclusive partnership with BCB Government Relations, one of the most progressive and influential lobbying firms on Beacon Hill. BCB’s political insight and comprehensive understanding of the legislative, regulatory and administrative processes within our state government will guide the development of smart, effective plans to impact all relevant policy matters within state government – including the Cannabis Control Commission.

Borghesani said lobbying on Beacon Hill is essential for giving the new industry a voice where there is still much opposition to legal cannabis. It’s always helpful to have people on the ground who have contacts and understand how the system works,” he said. “Just like any other industry, lobbyists are going to continue to represent the marijuana industry so that our voices are heard.” -Eagle Tribune

CannaBiz of Mass seeks clear and sensible regulation that promotes health and safety in our communities, excellence in our products and services, and compliance at every level of our industry.

Our political advocacy and associated public relations efforts are meant to improve and maintain a positive image of the cannabis industry and to represent the interests of our members by maintaining constructive involvement in government and regulatory affairs in order to enhance the climate of the cannabis industry in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
