To kick off its active participation in the Greater Boston Chamber, Weedmaps’ President and General Counsel, Chris Beals, will be a featured panelist at a September 22 Chamber Forum titled “Legalized Cannabis: Building a Successful New Industry.” The event will highlight how the emerging cannabis industry in Massachusetts will contribute to the local and state economy, benefit the broader business community, and provide opportunity for small business owners including entrepreneurs of color.

Their voice is a welcome and important addition to our diverse and collaborative membership that works together to make Greater Boston a more competitive region.”

“Thanks to forward thinking state laws, Massachusetts is primed to be an innovation leader in the medical and adult use cannabis space.” Beals stated. “Through the implementation of smart state and local policies and ordinances, cannabis can be a catalyst for job growth, crime reduction, tax revenue and even improved health outcomes. Partnerships like the one between the Greater Boston Chamber and Weedmaps are critical to navigating some of the complexities of creating a safe and trusted cannabis industry.”
