Massachusetts to limit number of cannabis delivery licenses

Marijuana regulators in Massachusetts decided Tuesday to restrict the number of recreational cannabis delivery licenses and rejected a plan to delay delivery until 2023.

According to the State House News Service, the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission agreed to allow one business to own up to two delivery licenses – either two marijuana delivery courier licenses, or two MJ delivery operator permits or one of each.

Industry officials and advocates in the state have been discussing adult-use cannabis home delivery as a way to give social equity applicants a leg up and also provide another option that could be profitable – wholesale delivery.

Under the new rules, the delivery licenses would be available exclusively for the first three years to social equity and certified economic-empowerment applicants.

The commission meets again on Oct. 29 to review the language of the regulations and to vote.
