Delivered, Inc., a minority-owned, Clinton-based cannabis delivery company, has expanded its delivery range to include cities and towns such as Framingham, Uxbridge, and Grafton, bringing the number of municipalities the business serves to 29. 

Delivered first began operations in July, initially offering same-day delivery services to nine communities in the Clinton area. The company is led by CEO and Co-founder Ruben Seyde, a participant in the Cannabis Control Commission’s Social Equity Program, which is designed to increase participation in the cannabis industry by individuals from communities disproportionately harmed by marijuana prohibition and enforcement.

“I grew up in Fitchburg and frequently traveled throughout Central Massachusetts while doing exactly what I’m doing now, except now I get to do it legally,” Seyde said in a Thursday press release announcing the move. “This is a dream come true.”

The expansion of Delivered’s services comes as cannabis delivery companies await a rule change from Massachusetts regulators to allow for deliveries to be made with only one employee in a vehicle.

The Delivered, Inc. delivery range now includes places like Fitchburg and Uxbridge, with the minimum delivery requirement varying by municipality.

Current rules require two employees to be in any vehicle that is transporting cannabis, but commissioners voted in December three to one to approve a change to eliminate that requirement. Business owners are waiting for the commission to formally rewrite and approve the regulations, a process that has taken four months. 

Massachusetts law allows for the home delivery of cannabis products to municipalities without bans against retail cannabis sales. The delivery of medical marijuana was already legal in the state when voters approved the ballot initiative to legalize cannabis for recreational use in November 2016. 

The first recreational delivery transaction occurred in June 2021, more than two years after the first storefront recreational sale on Nov. 20, 2018.
