While we’ll have to wait on whether or not the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) will address the recent ruling undoing Gov. Charlie Baker’s vape ban on medical cannabis vaping products, the recent news from the controversial “vape ban” in Massachusetts is the CCC are stepping in from a regulatory standpoint.
Suffolk Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins ruled earlier this week that the Baker administration could not enforce their vape ban on card carrying medical marijuana patients. The block on the Baker ruling begins later this month. The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court will hear arguments from those involved in the suit Wilkins ruled on, Vapor Technology Corporation as well as medical cannabis patients and advocates, in December.
“The commission voted on Thursday to begin regulating ‘extracts, concentrates and any marijuana accessories or devices used for the consumption of vaporized marijuana products.’
Additionally, the regulations would only apply to ‘ingredients, labeling, testing, sourcing, storage of marijuana vape products and manufacturing and consumption processes of marijuana products and marijuana accessories.’
The vote comes after Suffolk Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins ruled on Tuesday that Gov. Charlie Baker and his administration are blocked from enforcing their ban on medical marijuana vaping products beginning on Nov. 12.”
Per the judicial ruling, the Cannabis Control Commission will be tasked with deciding whether to continue enforcing the prohibition.
