The Cannabis Control Commission is pleased to announce that Certified Economic Empowerment Applicants and Social Equity Program Participants can now apply for pre-certification and licensure for a second delivery license type through the Massachusetts Cannabis Industry Portal (MassCIP). The availability of this license is a major development to the agency’s ongoing commitment to ensure meaningful participation in the legal industry by individuals who have been disproportionately impacted by previous cannabis prohibition, as well as efforts to combat unregulated cannabis delivery happening throughout the Commonwealth.
“I applaud the Commissioners, staff, and members of the public who envisioned this license type and worked hard to streamline the application and make it as accessible as possible,” said Commission Executive Director Shawn Collins. “Our delivery policies and procedures will only bolster Massachusetts’ reputation as a role model for states looking to incorporate equity into cannabis legalization and ensure public safety.”
As it launches this application in MassCIP, the Commission is also assisting applicants by publishing a Delivery Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document that helps applicants and the public navigate the submission and review process. Massachusetts residents can locate the FAQ by visiting MassCannabisControl.com and following the “Applicants and Licensee” constituent pathway to “Adult-Use Licensees/Frequently Asked Questions” or looking under “Public Documents.”
