MassCANN Rally Today

Today, MassCANN/NORML will hold a rally at 10am in front of the State House to urge legislators to oppose the House bill to add further regulations on cannabis. The bill would:

  • increase the tax to 28% on recreational sales and 21.75% on medical sales;
  • require everyone who wishes to work in the cannabis industry and everyone who applies for a license and everyone they associate with in the course of business to be investigated and fingerprinted with the information shared with the FBI;
  • grant local elected officials unilateral ability to limit or ban marijuana retail stores, cultivation facilities, testing hubs, and manufacturing sites for marijuana-infused products, instead of requiring a citizen vote;
  • make the personal possession of hemp seeds and cultivation of hemp for personal use a crime.

We urge you to come out to this rally today.
