Help for Massachusetts Cannabis Microbusiness is Here: The Sira Accelerator
When the Cannabis Control Commission locked in the new recreational cannabis regulations, their message was clear: Massachusetts-based small business will be given the opportunity to catch up. Barriers to entry were lowered by providing a flexible licensing and fee structure, as well as capping cultivation at 100,000 square feet, and retail stores to 3, per licensee. This promotes the inclusion of small and large-scale business ventures, while allowing for both competition and growth.
So the State cannabis regulations are there to help microbusinesses...but where is the local and industry support? Well, that's where The Sira Accelerator comes in.
