Massachusetts marijuana retailers could get final go-ahead this month

A handful of the marijuana businesses granted provisional licenses have informed the Cannabis Control Commission they are ready to be inspected, one of the final steps before retail sales of marijuana, approved by voters almost two years ago, can begin.

Commission chairman Steven Hoffman said Thursday that the agency is working to schedule inspections for two or three provisionally licensed businesses. Hoffman said the inspections are expected to take place “over the next week, plus or minus.”

He said it’s possible the commission could vote at its next meeting, Sept. 20, to issue a final license if a business passes its inspection and fulfills other requirements by then.

“The final inspection is one of the multiple number of requirements to go from provisional license — there is payment of the fee and other things — assuming those get turned around, I think the answer is it’s quite possible,” Hoffman said when asked about issuing a final license at the next commission meeting.

The chairman noted that such a vote will only take place if the commission’s inspection team approves the facility and finds that it comports to the law and the agency’s regulations. [Read more at Mass Live]
