State officials overseeing the medical and recreational marijuana industries have released rewritten rules regarding marijuana vaping lounges and home delivery.
The State News House Service says after unanimously agreeing to them last week, cannabis regulators on Tuesday released rewritten rules that would govern both sides of the legal marijuana world, proposing regulations to eliminate an annual fee for medical patients, set the stage for home delivery, of and marijuana vaping lounges.
The Cannabis Control Commission set out to revise and republish its slate of regulation after assuming control of the medical marijuana program from the Department of Public Health in December and as regulators rolled out the first licensed pot stores in Massachusetts. The product of months of policy discussions and hearings, the new draft regulations for the medical marijuana world as well as the adult-use or recreational industry will be open for public input until Aug. 16.
“This has been painstaking, this has been hard,” CCC Chairman Steven Hoffman said last Thursday, thanking staff members for their work on the draft regulations. The CCC voted 5-0 on Thursday to approve the draft regulations but they were not released publicly until Tuesday.
