A Personal Message from the Founder

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The idea for Central Ave Compassionate Care Inc. came with the passage of Chapter 369 of the Acts of 2012, which provides access to marijuana for medical use by patients suffering debilitating illnesses such as Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), multiple sclerosis, cancer and others as set forth in state regulations.   These are our friends and neighbors who are struggling with terrible diseases - patients whose physicians may recommend marijuana for medical use.

As I researched this project and attended hearings held by the state Department of Public Health, the need for Registered Marijuana Dispensaries became even more clear.  I heard many stories of pain and suffering, as well as compassion and love. 

I am a business owner, entrepreneur and a 20-year resident of Shirley, where my wife and I have raised our two sons.  With more than 25 years of experience and training in soil sciences and plant health, I believe the new law offers me a chance to assist the truly ill in our community by using my entrepreneurial and professional experience. 

I am grateful to the voters of the Town of Ayer, who at a June 24th Town Meeting, overwhelmingly supported this project by rejecting a proposed zoning moratorium on marijuana for medical use dispensaries.  The new law, the strict regulations passed by the Department of Public Health, and the dispensary planned for 31 Central Ave. in Ayer, will control the product and ensure it is used only as intended by state law and the voters of Massachusetts.  

Thank you for visiting this website and taking the time to learn about Central Ave Compassionate Care Inc.  Should you have any questions or comments about this project, please contact me at jhillier@centralavecare.org. 


Very truly yours, 


John Hillier
