BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- A Milford-based company is expected to be awarded the very first business license to cultivate adult-use cannabis in Massachusetts. WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Carl Stevens spoke to Sira Naturals CEO Michael Dundas about the potential license.
"We are very gratified that the Cannabis Control Commission has seen fit to put us on this list," he said. "We're not sure exactly what's going to happen tomorrow, but it does appear relatively likely that they will take this vote--and we're very very excited."
Dundas told the WBZ NewsRadio 1030 marijuana podcast Blunt Talk that, if in time the company gets a retail license, they could sell adult-use marijuana in their current medical marijuana facilities in Somerville and Cambridge--if they get the required local zoning approvals.
"Anything that's available for recreational or adult use will also be available to medical patients," he said. "There will be a subset of products that's only available for medical patients."
The five-member commission received 51 applications from cannabis businesses earlier this month, with only fifteen from potential retailers. The commission will meet Thursday.
