The CCC 4-1 vote on Friday gives preliminary approval to the policy
State cannabis regulators have signed off on plans for home delivery of legal recreational pot.
The Boston Globe reports the Cannabis Control Commission voted 4-1 on Friday to give preliminary approval to the policy, which could begin later this year after regulations are adopted and a final vote taken.
Under the plan, delivery businesses could pick up products from retail cannabis stores and bring them to residential customers.
For the first two years, regulators say delivery businesses would be limited to social equity and economic empowerment applicants. The state law that legalized recreational cannabis included provisions designed to help small entrepreneurs from areas of the state that were disproportionately impacted by past enforcement of cannabis laws.
So far, however, Massachusetts’ cannabis industry has been dominated by large, well-financed companies.
