The Club

There aren't many business students with cannabis backgrounds, so we welcome your questions! This club is a safe place where you can ask questions and learn from current players space.

We want to debunk the main myth clouding peoples' perceptions of cannabis-related companies: Work is definitely not Cheech and Chong Inc. It’s a serious industry lacking top professionals in many roles.

We are not a consumption club. Even though we’re very happy about Massachusett’s first recreational licenses, we do not encourage cannabis consumption as the centerpiece our social events.
