We’re longtime supporters of restorative justice for cannabis offenses, and we’re continued sponsors of cannabis conviction expungement initiatives and events. We’ve been vocal advocates for the inclusion of restorative justice measures within recent and pending legislation. We continue to push for even greater legislative action to help support communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs.
We were among the first cannabis companies to partner with established community organizations to improve care for individuals that have been negatively impacted by the war on drugs. Ayr’s Massachusetts brand Sira partners with the Community Action Agency of Somerville (CAAS) to improve housing stability for CAAS clients.
Sira is a founding member of Mass CultivatED, a public-private partnership that provides education and employment opportunities for communities that have experienced disproportionate impact through the war on drugs. Sira has also partnered with Harvard Business School’s Cannabis Club, the Workforce Development Department in Somerville and the Community Policing Unit in Boston to increase awareness of and training for employment opportunities in the cannabis industry.
