Medical Marijuana Regulatory Adjustment Testimony Working Session
We welcome patients interested in learning more about the proposed regulatory changes by the Department of Public Health and how to prepare testimony and speak about the changes to our medical cannabis program. MPAA will be holding a working session on testimony with patients at our offices in Boston which will include an overview of the proposed changes and what it means for patients.
