Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance

Mission Statement

The Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance (MPAA) is a coalition of medical marijuana patients, their family members and caregivers, medical professionals, and public health groups that supports safe access to medical cannabis for patients with a doctor’s recommendation.

MPAA brought the 2012 medical cannabis ballot initiative to the voters, and has since been working to ensure implementation of the law is completed in a manner that works for individual patients and communities as a whole.

The Massachusetts patient advocacy alliance, will continue to advocate for safe access to medical marijuana in the commonwealth of MA.
