CCC FACING BIG TEST AS DRAFT REGS HIT TURBULENCE

BOSTON, FEB. 12, 2018.....Two years later, many of the same groups that contested the ballot question to legalize marijuana are clashing again over the scope of the newly-legal industry, setting up the state's young regulatory agency for its most crucial decisions yet later this month.

As contemplated in the Cannabis Control Commission's draft regulations, the marijuana industry in Massachusetts would include home delivery of cannabis, establishments where users could purchase single servings of marijuana and consume it on-site, licenses for delivery-only dispensaries, the ability for businesses like cinemas and massage parlors to also offer limited marijuana products, and more.

Whether that's ultimately the industry that takes hold here remains up to the CCC, which plans to hold public meetings later this month to decide whether to forge ahead with the regulations it unanimously adopted less than two months ago, or bow to pressure to keep things simple and proceed with caution.
