Patient Survey Party on Medical Use of Marijuana

Confused about the lengthy 30 minute long DPH Medical Use of Marijuana Program Patient Survey? You are not alone. The Department of Public Health has invited adult patients to participate in a survey meant to explore patterns of use and perception of risk among medical patients in the Commonwealth to inform the safe use and implementation of marijuana legalization.

In typical DPH fashion, the survey is long and lengthy with a ton of written text making it difficult to for registered patients to complete.

Because of this MPAA will be gathering medical marijuana patients together for a survey taking party on March 21 in Boston. We will explore the reasons behind the survey, what the questions on the survey mean, and how you can easily participate in the survey to inform the safe roll out of marijuana legalization.

It wouldn't be a party without cake so that is a guarantee.  We will also have other prizes and surprises for patients that attend in usual MPAA fashion so this is not an event you will want to miss.

Special guests will be announced soon! Space is limited!
