Massachusetts legalized marijuana for adult use in December 2016, yet regulators have yet to finalize the rules for business licensing, tax collections, and other administrative functions of the government in the new branch of the state’s marijuana industry.

Massachusetts Marijuana Laws logo leafbuyer blogMassachusetts Question 4, also known as the Massachusetts Marijuana Legalization Initiative, was on the ballot November 8th, 2016, and passed by fifty-four percent for recreational marijuana.
