Stores will be open for curbside delivery only — thanks to all who contacted the Baker administration and their elected officials!
Today, Gov. Charlie Baker announced that adult-use cannabis retailers will be allowed to reopen on May 25. The stores, which had been ordered to cease operations on March 23, will be allowed to serve customers by curbside delivery only during the first phase of the commonwealth’s reopening.
Thanks to everyone who contacted Gov. Baker and other elected officials and stressed the importance of regulated cannabis businesses! The shutdown has been a major setback for businesses and an inconvenience for many consumers, so it is a great relief that things can finally start getting back on track.
In other positive news from the Bay State, applications for delivery licenses are expected to become available in late May. These licenses will be reserved for social equity and economic empowerment applicants.
