Dear EfficientGov Subscriber,
No coverage of economic development could really be complete without discussing -- hold breath, roll eyes or lean in -- cannabis. Review a report on the launch of the Massachusetts recreational market with policy and technical resources for local governments, and find out what's happening to revenues in California because of black market pot sales.

In Tech, we hear from HHS Chief Data Officer Mona Siddiqui on silo smashing and how DeKalb County is reducing violence in crime hotspots using ER data.

July 4th has passed, so Back to School coverage on EfficientGov begins with $21 million in Stop School Violence grants. Also, read about how Camila and Matthew McConaughey's foundation afterschool programs thrive through partnerships.
