About Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council

BECOME A MEMBER

Established since the legalization of cannabis in 2017, Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council, is a political organization in advocacy of communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the racially motivated War on Drugs. Black & Brown, women, and queer led - our workers move in solidarity for racial, healing, and transformative justice through an intersectional framework.

Since 2017 we have successfully accomplished:
  • Racial Justice: Successfully lobbied for the first Massachusetts racial equity fund policy based on the War on Drugs using cannabis tax revenue, reparations fund using cannabis tax revenue, and racial equity commission, all as part of municipal based grassroots organizing and campaigning.
  • Healing Justice: Successfully lobbied for state social equity program, cooperative licenses, micro business licenses, secret shopper program, tincture guidance, language in Massachusetts' social equity fund bill to include grants, loan forgiveness, and an increase for 25% set aside from cannabis tax revenue;
  • Transformative Justice: Since founded we have taught over 50 workshops on homegrow education, cooperatives, understanding policy and regulations, know your rights, best practices for responsible consumption, expungement clinics with partnership with National Expungement Work as regional coordinator for expungement clinics in Massachusetts since 2018; , Black indigenous consumer rights, license guidance, social equity, and more!

IS MY DONATION TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?

YES!

The Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council is a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization.
Contributions to 501(c)(4) organizations generally are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. However, they may be deductible as trade or business expenses, if ordinary and necessary in the conduct of the taxpayer’s business. Therefore, any contributions received could be considered as ordinary and necessary expenses in the taxpayer’s business (i.e. advertising, professional fees, R&D, etc.)
Although donations are not “charitable contributions”, they can still be business expenses reducing taxable income, which is essentially the same effect.

YOUR VOTE LEGALIZED THIS INDUSTRY! WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE, DO YOU? 


A CLEAN SAFE CANNABIS INDUSTRY

The Massachusetts recreational cannabis industry has the ability to create jobs, provide consumers with better choice, enable a competitive market that will minimize illicit activity, and avoid disparate impacts on vulnerable communities.

Your vote legalized this industry. Help us keep the Massachusetts cannabis industry safe and equitable.  

JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
There is no better investment in the cannabis industry than to support the movement for economic and social justice through:
  • Advocating for the consumer interests on a state and municipal level;
  • Providing educational trainings and workshops to municipalities and the state;
  • Mobilizing constituents to lobby for equity on a state and municipal level;
  • Sharing cooperative models and best practices to community members and stakeholders.
We appreciate you. We've been working on this since the beginning of legalization Dec 15, 2016. Our goal: a flourishing cannabis industry formed through local economy and equitable free market practices. Help make it happen :)
