While Denver has been slow to implement a regulatory system for marijuana consumption establishments – despite receiving a directive from voters in November 2016 – Massachusetts appears to be taking a more robust statewide approach.

As Massachusetts Cannabis Commissioner Shaleen Title tells The Boston Globe, “If we give people a place that’s regulated, that’s overseen by trained staff, and where you can use in a responsible way and don’t have to hide, I think that can only be good.”

The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission last month took preliminary votes to allow for businesses where cannabis products can be consumed on site, and to permit home delivery of cannabis. After taking comments from the public, the agency will enact final rules by March 15. Cannabis sales are scheduled to begin July 1.
