It seems that the right to use marijuana outside the house legally will not become a reality in the near future in Massachusetts. However, legal sales of marijuana for adults remain on schedule starting July 1, although the regulations governing the industry are currently still designed.
The Cannabis Decision Making Commission of Massachusetts chose in late February to postpone the act of giving a “social consumption” license for marijuana. The idea of creating marijuana cafes where people can enter, buy marijuana and use it there – like people entering bars and ordering a beer – proved too controversial for many state leaders. Activities to establish marijuana cafes are postponed until autumn 2018, with a new proposal prepared in February 2019 at the earliest.
