A bipartisan group of Massachusetts lawmakers has voiced opposition to the Cannabis Control Commission’s (CCC) cannabis delivery regulations, according to a MassLive.com report.

The draft regulations, which were established last month, would create two types of delivery licenses—a “limited delivery license,” which would allow a licensee to charge a fee to deliver from licensed cannabis dispensaries, and a “wholesale delivery license,” which would allow a licensee to buy cannabis wholesale from licensed cultivators and manufacturers, store it in a warehouse and sell it to consumers.

Nineteen state lawmakers drafted a letter to the CCC last week, indicating that they “believe that the wholesale delivery license was not contemplated, nor supported, by the enabling legislation,” MassLive.com reported.

The lawmakers asked the CCC to reconsider its final vote on the proposed delivery regulations, which is expected to take place Oct. 20, according to the news outlet.
