Cannabis Law: An Introduction

On November 8, 2016, the Massachusetts Marijuana Legalization Initiative appeared as question #4 on the Massachusetts state voter’s ballot. This initiative was approved, which ultimately led to the legalization of recreational marijuana for anyone over the age of 21 to be able to purchase and have access to marijuana products. It also created the regulatory authority that oversees legal business known as the Cannabis Control Commission.

If you’ve found yourself inside our Bloom Brothers store, you’re most likely one of the individuals who voted yes, so thanks for your support! However, there’s more to these new laws that meet the eye. This pamphlet will go into more detail about Massachusetts state law and federal laws that consumers must be aware of in order to remain law-abiding citizens as well as be able to protect yourself and the plant we hold so dearly to our hearts.


Many Massachusetts citizens were upset at the lengthy timeframe it took to be able to access legal cannabis products. States such as Colorado and California had access to product shortly after legislation was passed, but it took years for Massachusetts to catch up.

The truth is, the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission didn’t want to make the same mistakes others state did. Other states have seen too many dispensaries open in one area, resulting in start-up businesses going bankrupt and an up-tick in cannabis being diverted to minors and schools. Massachusetts wants to ensure only qualified companies who have done their due-diligence become licensed to help prevent products from being diverted.

Our belief is that the longer the wait, the sweeter the reward. Access to legal cannabis has finally arrived, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to provide you access to these wonderful products!
