Medical Marijuana Regulatory-Palooza was an overwhelming success. As I listened to you all debate regulatory
issues during the sessions, I was blown away by the level of expertise,
the commitment to the interests of patients, and the varied perspectives.
I'm eager to see how your knowledge contributes to our Commonwealth's
budding medical marijuana industry and to the welfare of patients across
My staff and I learned a lot from all of you. In the coming months, we'll
review the video, notes, and testimony in order to make regulatory recommendations
to the Department of Health. If you have not already submitted testimony
on the conference's 24 discussion questions, I ask that you
do so by visiting our website. If you submitted testimony prior to the conference, please do so again;
this time, highlight how your opinions changed, or didn't change,
based on your discussions and debates at the conference. Be assured that
your efforts will not be wasted; my staff and I will read each and every
submission many times over and are more than happy to dialog with you
in the coming months.
