The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) agreed on a framework for cannabis delivery regulations Sept. 24, according to a MassLive.com report.
The proposal would create two types of delivery licenses, the news outlet reported, as well as establish a timeline to implement the new regulations.
The first license type, a “limited delivery license,” would allow a licensee to charge a fee to deliver from licensed cannabis dispensaries, according to MassLive.com. The second license type, a “wholesale delivery license,” would allow a licensee to buy cannabis wholesale from licensed cultivators and manufacturers, store it in a warehouse and sell it to consumers, the news outlet reported.
The draft regulations set a $1,500 application fee for both license types, as well as a $5,000 annual license fee for limited delivery licenses and a $10,000 annual license fee for wholesale delivery licenses, according to MassLive.com, although the CCC will waive the application fee and first-year license fee for limited delivery licenses and reduce the fees by half in the second year.
The delivery licenses will be available only to Social Equity Program applicants and certified economic empowerment applicants for the first three years, the news outlet reported.
The CCC plans to open a public comment period on the draft regulations and will vote to finalize the rules Oct. 20, after considering any feedback received.
