CCC looking into the possibility of home delivery for recreational marijuana

Boston Statehouse

While no retail pot shops have opened for business in Massachusetts, the Cannabis Control Commission is looking ahead to the possibility of marijuana home deliveries.

The Cannabis Control Commission on Thursday issued provisional and final licenses for ten growing and retail marijuana locations across the state.

Commission members are concerned with how impaired driving would impact retail licenses.

Members of the commission requested that information be distributed to people who buy marijuana, describing the dangers of driving under the influence.

The CCC said one way to cut down on impaired driving would be to allow home deliveries.

If a facility wanted to go into the delivery business, they would have to have specific licensing from the CCC to do so.

The CCC did not go into detail about the process of getting home delivery licenses, but they said it is an option they’ll discuss in the future.
