Mass. Marijuana Board To Vote On First Draft Laws


BOSTON (WBZ-AM) – It's a big week for the Massachusetts state's Cannabis Control Commission. Members are set to debate and vote on draft regulations for the retail marijuana business in the state this week.

With retail marijuana stores expected to open in the middle of next years, it's the job of the state's cannabis control commission to establish some regulations.

“I would say that everybody around the country should be watching Massachusetts right now because we’ve proposed something that truly different,” said Michael Latulippe, member of the commission’s advisory board.

By that he means, a proposal that would allow on-site cannabis consumption, similar to a cigar bar, and also a proposal to allow small businesses, like yoga studios, to sell marijuana.  .

He says the state could set a new standard when it comes to regulating marijuana:

“I think it could have major implications on the cannabis industry all over the world if applied correctly,” he said.

The commission could reach a vote by the end of the week.
