Cannabis cafes may be in Massachusetts' future

These Four States Could Legalize Recreational Weed in 2018 [MAP]

Sometime soon in MA, you'll be able to walk into a cafe, ask for a marijuana product, and consume it right there without heading home first. The commissioners' decisions on these topics will be included in a set of draft regulations that the CCC intends to release by the end of the month.

Marijuana is legal for adults in eight states, including MA and ME, and the District of Columbia.

The state agency responsible for regulating legalized marijuana approved a policy on Monday that will allow for such establishments, so-called "cannabis cafes", to open - where one can buy a cannabis product and then legally consume it on the premises, just like buying a drink at a bar.

"The city of Hartford should be commended for publicly endorsing legalization and joining the voices throughout the state that are calling for sensible marijuana policies", said Sam Tracy, director of the Connecticut Coalition to Regulate Marijuana. And like bartenders, marijuana servers will be properly trained to identify when someone is too intoxicated.

"You would be over 21, show your ID and you would enter the establishment and you would be able to purchase a serving of cannabis and consume it on site", said Title.

"There will be a variety of access points for adult consumers beyond the traditional package store model, so it's transformative across the board", said Latulippe. For example, spas will be able to apply for a license so that a massage therapist can offer cannabanoid infused lotions as part of treatment. "Particularly for people who may live with non-consuming roommates or family members who don't want consumption taking place at home, people with children at home that don't want to keep marijuana there, people who live in public housing, [and] people who are staying in hotels".

The commission is now discussing other policies for the state's forthcoming cannabis market.

"My role is, as a public safety official, is to make sure that whatever those regulations are, that public health and public safety are kept at the forefront and that this is done in the safest way possible", he said. Those regulations will need to be finalized sometime next March.
