Marijuana Party Bus Still Needs the OK from Massachusetts Board

The chairman of the state’s Cannabis Control Commission says the legality of mobile weed lounges will be part of its ongoing review of businesses that stem from legalized marijuana use, as a Colorado company eyes bringing its “puff bus” service to the Bay State.

The Herald reported yesterday that a company called Loopr, which is already operating in Denver, wants to expand next year to other states, including Massachusetts, California and Nevada. Loopr customers smoke on a party bus as it tours local dispensaries, hotels and bars.

“We are committed to drafting regulations that effectively address potential impacts to public safety and diversion to minors,” Hoffman said.

Jim Borghesani, spokesman for the Yes on 4 committee that sponsored the ballot question that legalized recreational weed use in November, said pot bus enterprises are in keeping with the new law.

“We see these mobile cannabis consumption businesses as no different from the alcohol party buses or limousines that have long been permitted under Massachusetts law,” Borghesani said. [Read more at Boston Herald]
