New Bedford natives selected as cannabis consultants
NEW BEDFORD — A company run by New Bedford natives has been selected by the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission to train and mentor people who want to get into the legal marijuana business.
The commission chose GreenLight Business Solutions as one of six entities — both nonprofit and for-profit — that will move forward in a procurement process to offer state-funded training as part of the Social Equity Program.
The new program provides pathways into the business for Massachusetts residents who have been disproportionately harmed by marijuana prohibition.
