CANNABIS CAFÉS COMING TO MASSACHUSETTS

Cannabis cafes are set to be introduced in Massachusetts as state regulators finalize guidelines for its rollout.

Former Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson, who now owns Apex Noire, believes that the legalization of cannabis did not provide a place for smoking. He aims to create a chef-guided menu to normalize cannabis consumption. The Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) has been listening to concerns from the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, including how to handle impairment and driving, which is of course on everyone’s mind when cannabis becomes more legal and readily available. Salisbury Police Chief Thomas Fowler is concerned about how officers can determine if someone is too high to drive due to the long-lasting presence of THC in the system. The CCC is also reviewing the issue of secondhand exposure to marijuana, as it is difficult to pinpoint the amount of THC in a person's system. The CCC is reviewing the air movement requirements and the number of times the air must move throughout the room to accommodate the smoke. "Cigar bars do exist, but how many times does the air have to move throughout the room? What are the requirements around that?" questioned Jackson. All in all, I have high hopes that Massachusetts will figure this all out, and it’s wonderful to see the rest of the world finally starting to catch up to Canada and cannabis culture.
