Some very interesting numbers this week from Massachusetts and New Jersey...and they tell us that there's a lot more work we need to do to #educate #elevate and #empower
In MA...only 2 applications in from Suffolk County (that's #Boston folks) Worcester County is leading the pack with the Berkshires a far 2nd behind em.
There are only THREE Priority applications in from the Social Equity Program. Many were unable to complete/submit full applications due to lack of technical assistance programs which would help applicants understand the process...an equalizer for those who cant afford the consultants and lobbyists most other dispensary applicants have.
In NJ...THIRTY municipalities decided to ban the sale of legal #Cannabis.
Only 4 so far officially say they want marijuana business: Ashbury Park, Atlantic City, Jersey City & Trenton.
As #cannawarriors it is our responsibility to #mobilze & educate the people to break the stigma of the over 80 yrs of anti #marijuana prohibition & publicity. Get folks out to our community boards, town halls, churches, community organizers, local politicians and elders. Re-educate...inform...alter the thinking cuz these are many of the #community who keep the marijuana ban going.
#theresmoreworktobedone and we can do it!
If YOU wanna help make that #change, follow and/join @maconsumers and/or @cannagather_nj
