Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission Chair Steve Hoffman Resigns

Hoffman was the last of the original 5 commissioners

Steve Hoffman has resigned as the chair of the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission, leaving the state’s marijuana regulatory agency leaderless months before his five-year term was set to expire at the end of August.

Hoffman, who had been the only remaining commissioner of the five people initially appointed to the oversight body at its inception in 2017, did not give a specific reason for his early departure.

In a statement to The Boston Globe, however, he said the commission’s work had reached “a natural inflection point when the time is right for a transition in leadership.”

“Throughout the past four-and-a-half years, the work of the commission has been sometimes challenging, often exhausting, but always gratifying,” Hoffman wrote. “The commission now consists of recently appointed members, and it is appropriate that they pursue their own vision and take on the next generation of challenges.”
