Sponsor the Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance in 2017

The Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance represents the coalition which drafted and passed the medical marijuana ballot question and we remain the primary voice of medical marijuana patients and their providers at the local, state, and national level within the Commonwealth.  Sponsorships go directly towards fulfilling our goal of expanding safe access in Massachusetts.  We developed our sponsorship program because we want to recognize those organizations and businesses that support our mission.  We also want our supporters to utilize organizations and businesses that are supporting MPAA.  This program will allow your organization to put funds directly into the movement here in Massachusetts while getting special benefits from MPAA your organization needs to succeed such as publicity and public hearing support.

WHY SPONSOR MPAA IN 2017?  

  1. We have nearly a 100% success rate helping RMDs obtain their letter of non-opposition/support through our advocacy in municipalities ranging from Boston and Cambridge to Springfield and New Bedford. 
  2. MPAA is the primary voice fighting to fix the medical marijuana patient registration program so that there are enough patients to support all the new RMDs coming online in 2017 and 2018.
  3. In 2016, MPAA worked with Leafly and Weedmaps to have all the unregulated and illegal delivery drivers removed off their Websites so that registered patients would have easier access to the regulated Registered Marijuana Dispensaries. We will continue to fight patient exposure in 2017 to unregulated markets by working with the Attorney General's office and other elected officials. 
  4. MPAA will be involved in implementing any of the proposed changes by the Department of Public Health to the medical marijuana program including registering the first Institutional Caregivers. 
  5. We work with local and state governmental bodies  to ensure the social welfare of medical marijuana patients, doctors, caregivers, medical professionals, advocates and the general public while developing and implementing laws, policies and regulations related to medical marijuana and its safe use.
  6. Even as the state moves forward with registering dispensaries to operate, many cities and towns are opposed to having registered marijuana dispensaries (RMDs) and other cannabis businesses locating in their communities. MPAA is here to protect patients, RMD applicants, and other cannabis businesses from these vulnerabilities. We are the only statewide organization dedicated to medical marijuana reform, and our expertise in policy, public relations, organizing and campaigning is proven. 

How does MPAA support RMD applicants and operators?

We organize patients and supporters: MPAA brings patients, caregivers, and providers to the table to work to implement and improve the medical marijuana law as well as attending hearings with local patients to testify on behalf of your RMD or business and also holding educational events in the prospective city to create a strong patient base of support for your RMD or business.

We use the media: We change public perception of medical marijuana by developing effective spokespeople and coordinating public messaging with overall policy and education goals in all media outlets - TV, radio, print, social media, and other web-based publications. MPAA gets the message out.  In 2016 MPAA was mentioned 47 times in the media!

We build coalitions: We educate the medical and public health communities to remove the stigma of marijuana as medicine. We work with non-profits to identify possible allies and make sure that their support is used most effectively in our outreach campaigns.

We educate policy makers: We bring patients to visit their elected officials, organize individuals and public health groups to participate in public hearings, organize letter writing and phone call campaigns with supporters in key legislative districts. MPAA changes policy.
