Marijuana Commission Chair Talks Retail Rollout

September 11, 2017

More than ten months since the people of Massachusetts decided they wanted legalized, recreational marijuana, the panel tasked with overseeing the industry is finally getting down to business.

The Cannabis Control Commission will hold its first public meeting tomorrow, after the five members were named last month. The commission has until March 2018 to develop regulations and an application process for retail shops, which are supposed to be open by next summer.

Commission Chair Steve Hoffman, who voted against the ballot question last November, joins Jim Braude.
