The Cannabis Control Commission held a public meeting in Downtown Boston Thursday to determine approvals of license applications for the cultivation, manufacturing, transport and sale of recreational marijuana.
The commission discussed six final licenses and 11 provisional license applications, with six final licenses actually passing. Applicants are required to undergo extensive review before a full operations notice can be issued.

Ridiculous obstacles and regulations. 2 years after voters approved recreational sales, still not 1 open dispensary. I guess the members of the CCC must think they are smarter than similar agencies in other states that have managed to implement similar programs in less than 1 year. Not $1 of tax revenue generated by the program in ma. I don’t know, probably $100 million of lost tax revenue to the state so far. Yet, the beaurocratic CCC continues to plod along, receiving salaries from the state Typical Ma government mismanagement and incompetence. What about that implementing the will of the people?
