Governor Charlie Baker signed the legislative overhaul of last November’s referendum legalizing the licensed sale and cultivation of adult use cannabis. We summarized many key details of the bill here.
We have 8 short months until applications are due, although what those applications will require, how far along in the painstaking local zoning process applicants must be, how clear of an advantage licensed medical operators and applicants will have, and much more has been left to regulations from the new Cannabis Control Commission. Appointments to that all-important body will be made by September 1, and then it’s off to the races. The finish line is clear, but the course to get there is not yet known. Should be interesting.
