Under a new proposal in Massachusetts, a significant move that could increase the profitability of the delivery sector and benefit social equality applicants is delivery license holders would be able to buy cannabis directly from wholesale growers and manufacturers. On Friday, the Cannabis Control Commission voted to allow the change however, it will not be finalized until the panels get to vote again on September 24th. According to the State House News Service, a former proposal restricted delivery companies to selling marijuana and derivative products from cannabis retailers and making same-day drop-offs for a fee. Social equity and economic empowerment applicants are earmarked exclusively for the delivery licenses. A vote was made by the commission to increase how long the delivery licenses will be exclusive to the social equity and economic groups from two years to three years. Part of the Massachusetts cannabis program includes home delivery of medical marijuana. In 2019, state regulators approved the delivery license structure for adult-use cannabis. Applications were available in the spring, but no delivery licenses have been issued yet.
