Massachusetts cannabis home delivery language is a model for other states.
On Monday the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission voted to approve language finally rolling out two classes of delivery options, one for inter-retailer transfer and another for home delivery. The mairjuana courier and marijuana delivery operator licenses have a social equity component that will expire after three to four years.
The language should be helpful to legislators and regulators in other states considering both creating delivery programs and how to deal with extending COVID-19 regulatory changes that allow cannabis trade with limited social interaction. You can read the redlined text of the approved language here. The text also includes revisions to many other portions of the Massachusetts cannabis program including addressing monopoly issues and a better system for measuring the distance from schools for the “Buffer Zones” created under the statute.
