January 2017: Maintenance & Marijuana
On Wednesday, January 11th 2017, WPOA gathered for their first meeting of 2017. The topic drew a record breaking audience and peeked the interest of Senator Michael Moore who made time to attend and answer some of our questions about the new laws surrounding Marijuana. MassLandlords’ Executive Director Doug Quattrochi opened the night with the monthly Business Update.
After the business and local updates, we moved on to a presentation on Marijuana Laws given by Attorney Mark Lee. One of Attorney Lee’s specialties is Landlord and Tenant/Housing Law. He addressed aspects of legalized marijuana, such as: what can a landlord do, what can’t they do, how does recreational differ from medicinal, etc.
As the night progressed, we were excited to see what Norm LaChance had prepared for us. Norm has had years of experience doing repairs. From drafty windows to drywall repair, he knows how to fix it all! Norm had a literal dump-truck of hands on demos prepared for us, including: repairing a door jam, smoke detectors, dry wall, drafty windows, and repairing furnaces.
