Seminar to Discuss Impact of Recreational Marijuana on Business

HANCOCK — On July 1, recreational marijuana becomes legal in Massachusetts.  As the only state on the East Coast to allow 21 and older to buy cannabis recreationally, analysts anticipate a surge in tourism to Massachusetts, and particularly the Berkshires, from places like New York, Vermont, and Connecticut. What does this mean for your business? What plans should you have in place by July 1 to be prepared?

This Thursday, June 14, Berkshire Roots and 1Berkshire will host an educational session on “Canna Tourism in the Berkshires: What It Means for Your Business” at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock from 5 to 7 p.m. Attorney Andrea Nuciforo Jr., one of the founding members of Berkshire Roots, will address attendees’ questions.

Berkshire Roots is the first marijuana dispensary in Pittsfield and the largest grower of cannabis in the Berkshires. This educational session is free to 1Berkshire members and their employees. To register, call (413) 499-1600, ext 135.
