Despite pushback from some lawmakers, Massachusetts marijuana regulators are moving forward with plans to allow a new class of weed delivery business. During a three-hour meeting Tuesday, the state’s Cannabis Control Commission approved some “contentious” changes to draft regulations, allowing standalone recreational marijuana retailers without storefronts to deliver products to customers directly. Massachusetts already allows the delivery of medical marijuana. And allowing any recreational marijuana delivery has proved somewhat controversial. However, advocates argued — and the CCC ultimately agreed — that it would help licensed businesses compete with the many black-market operators. Also, the state promoted the delivery service could potentially help promote small and minority-owned companies a delivery business that could reduce start-up costs than a brick-and-mortar retail store.
