The expected July 1 rollout of recreational marijuana sales in Massachusetts has been delayed, with just two companies receiving a total of four provisional licenses from the Cannabis Control Commission despite 151 complete submitted applications. One company, Cultivate in Leicester, has been awarded a retail license, but state regulators need a testing facility licensed, up and running before stores can begin selling.
Once the industry is up and running, will you patronize Massachusetts recreational marijuana shops?

I may out of curiosity. Not a real big deal to me one way or the other.

The legalization of marijuana is just going to cause more problems. People cannot handle alcohol being legal. Now we add another drug to the mix and expect people to use that responsibly??? Not gonna happen. Most young adults think that it doesn't impair them at all- that driving while high isn't an issue....Well guess what? It does! It impairs your motor skills and thought process....so great job Massachusetts!

I want to try it once and see what all the buzz is about.

While I don't use pot, it offends me to see people punished who do!

As long as the safety standards are applied as called for by the CCC via the 3rd party independent labs, I would feel safe in using the products available. There are NO safety standards for products purchased either on the street or via the internet. One can never be sure of what they'll be ingesting.

I find pot to be psychologically harmful, kind of like a brain drain. Makes my head lazy. Works on a funny level, not at all like alcohol.

Being a registered medical MJ patient saves me taxes on rec, however I have to balance the difference between staying on as a patient, which requires 2 doctor's visits per year at $400, or paying extra in taxes by going the rec route.

This is bad for Massachusetts. I have seen the net effect in other states, beginning with Colorado. Bad for business, bad for law enforcement, bad for safety, bad for other drug use.
