Marijuana regulators have completely finished a minimum of one final inspection on the retail marijuana shop and more are scheduled, inching the Cannabis Control Commission closer to launching a business it had hoped to receive ready to go almost 90 days ago.
The commission had issued 30 provisional licenses for marijuana businesses prior to yesterday’s meeting, including 11 retail stores, but none of them within the businesses can ready to accept customers up until the CCC inspects the home, certifies this company is within compliance with all the law and state regulations, after which votes to issue one final license.
CCC Chairman Steven Hoffman said yesterday which the agency’s inspectors had completed their check of a business that holds at the least two provisional licenses, including one for retail. He explained another inspection was planned for yesterday knowning that inspectors were working to schedule several more.
“We’re getting there. There’s no question about this. Gasoline, a final inspection is always to check if there are any issues and when you can find issues we’re going to need to have those issues addressed then we’ll require out and re-inspect,” Hoffman said.
Hoffman said he would never know the way the one completed inspection went, but he suggested that the CCC could vote at its next meeting, Oct. 4, to issue any license to at least business.
Yesterday’s commission votes bring the sum of number of suppliers given provisional approval from the CCC to 15. They can be anticipated to be located in Leicester, Amesbury, Brookline, Northampton, Wareham, Plymouth, Easthampton, Salem, Fall River, Lowell, Greenfield, Salisbury, Ayer, Hudson and Pittsfield.
