Should all marijuana delivery trucks be required to have a video system in the driver and storage areas? Should drivers be required to wear body cameras to record deliveries? Should delivery be limited only to cities and towns that allow marijuana businesses?
These are some of the tricky questions the Cannabis Control Commission is grappling with as it formulates new state marijuana regulations.
And there are other issues, too. For example: How do state regulators define who has “ownership and control” of a company, given complex management agreements? Should regulators have authority to ban an entire category of products from store shelves?
The commission plans to vote Thursday on draft regulations that would update the state’s existing medical and recreational marijuana rules. The regulations would also create entirely new segments of the industry — namely, home delivery and social consumption facilities, like marijuana cafes. There will be public hearings next month before the final regulations are approved.
