Event FAQ

What is the Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance?
Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance represents the coalition of patients, providers and organizations that worked together to pass the ballot measure Question 3 in 2012 to legalize medical marijuana and establish a safely regulated medical marijuana program throughout the Commonwealth. MPAA is the primary stakeholder regarding the implementation of the Massachusetts medical marijuana program and we work with our base of over 15,000 supporters to impact safe access through educational endeavors and direct advocacy in cities and towns across MA. http://www.compassionforpatients.com/ 

Is this event open to the public? Yes this event is free to attend for anyone interested in learning about the medical marijuana program in Massachusetts.

Who Attends? We welcome everyone to attend interested in learning about cannabis as medicine, where to access medical marijuana, and how individuals and family members can help their loved ones access medical cannabis.
