The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission Issues Licenses

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - Massachusetts regulators want to keep a close eye on the types of marijuana products that will be for sale to adults once marijuana retailers open and whether those products might appeal to kids, a concern prompted yesterday, by an applicant seeking to make marijuana cake pops. The Cannabis Control Commission’s regulations prohibit edibles that are in the "distinct shape of a human, animal or fruit , in an attempt to block products that might appeal to children. What raised some concern at the CCC's meeting yesterday was a proposal from Attleboro based Ashli's Extract, to make a series of marijuana infused products and edibles including cookies, lemon squares and, specifically cake pops, a sort of cakebased lollipop. Commissioners said businesses seeking marijuana licenses should know that the commission will be scrutinizing submitted lists of edibles or other marijuana products. The commission approved the application from Ashli's Extract for a provisional license and approved nine other provisional licenses yesterday, including for Ashli's Farm, Inc., to grow up to 30,000 square feet of marijuana and for Ashli's Inc. to operate a retail store in Attleboro. Also for Gibby’s Garden in Uxbridge on Douglas Street to grow up to 5,000 square feet of marijuana and produce marijuana products as a micro-business. The Commission also approved six so called final licenses yesterday, New England Treatment Access was approved for two final licenses for its facility at 5 Forge Parkway in Franklin, one to grow up to 50,000 square feet of marijuana and the other to produce marijuana products. Sira Naturals was  approved for three  final licenses at its facility at 13 Commercial Way in Milford, one to grow up to 20,000 square feet of marijuana, to produce marijuana products and to transport marijuana to other licensed businesses.
