Bulletin – Recalled Microbial Test Kits

April 11, 2023

On March 9, 2023, a Marijuana Establishment notified the Cannabis Control Commission (Commission) of a product recall issued by Medicinal Genomics Corporation (MGC) regarding a test kit that can be used to measure microbial contaminants in cannabis products under proper laboratory conditions. According to MGC’s Quality Alert Bulletin dated January 18, 2023 (Tab B), this recall was prompted by a potential defect that may have occurred within one specific kit, identified in the alert bulletin by its Stock Keeping Unit no. 420201.  
At this time, the Commission has confirmed that only two Independent Testing Laboratories (ITLs) had previously purchased the kit subject to this recall. The agency’s Investigation and Enforcement department is actively identifying cannabis products tested for microbial contaminants that may not be compliant with Commission regulations. The purpose of this bulletin is to inform the public of its active and ongoing investigations into this matter.
The Commission is committed to promoting public health, safety, and welfare.  It is possible that some products which passed testing based on the recalled test kits may have moved into the market and remain at Marijuana Establishments or Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers or have been sold.  The Commission is investigating this matter and will keep the public updated if it makes findings that implicate an immediate or serious risk to public health, safety, and welfare.
Questions regarding this notice may be directed to the Commission by calling the agency at (774) 415-0200 or emailing

Eastern bank ‘excited’ to take over Century Bank’s cannabis business

Eastern Bank plans to continue Century Bank’s marijuana-banking business once it acquires its competitor later this year, Eastern's chief executive said Thursday.

Century (Nasdaq: CNBKA) was the first Massachusetts bank to accept deposits from marijuana-linked businesses and, despite the growth of the state’s cannabis sector, remains one of only a handful willing to do so today. Even though recreational and medical marijuana use is legal in Massachusetts, it remains illegal at the federal level, creating complications and uncertainty in a banking industry that is known for its aversion to risk.

Eastern is one of the many local lenders that has not banked cannabis businesses, according to executives. On an investor call about the proposed $642 million acquisition, Eastern CEO Bob Rivers addressed the issue head on: “Certainly one of the things that you probably know about this franchise is they’re the largest marijuana banking enterprise here in Massachusetts. That’s something that I believe only three other banks in the market have done. It’s something that we haven’t done in the past, but one that we’re excited to learn,” he said.

Century’s marijuana banking was a major focus of Eastern’s due diligence ahead of the merger agreement, Rivers and Century CEO Barry Sloane said in interviews Thursday. 

Prior to the acquisition, Eastern had considered whether to enter cannabis itself, but its leaders weren’t sure it was worthwhile to build up the necessary financial and legal infrastructure, according to Rivers. During merger talks, one thing brought him comfort about the prospect of banking marijuana firms, he said: Sloane’s own comfort with the sector.

“Barry's a really conservative guy,” Rivers said. “He doesn't venture into this business because he's a champion of marijuana, per se. He ventured into it because he thought it was good business. He saw an opportunity. He, being so detail-oriented, understands it up, down and sideways. ... We always would say, ‘Well, if anyone's figured this thing out, it's Barry.’”

'Good customers of ours'

For years, Century executives were unwilling to publicly discuss their marijuana operations. The bank started in the mid-2010s by providing deposit and checking services to medical marijuana operators for a hefty fee, though it has since expanded to recreational cannabis businesses. It did not initially lend to firms that directly handle cannabis, since a loan poses longer-term risks than something like deposit services, but it has since done a limited amount of real estate lending to such businesses, according to Sloane.

Had Century been acquired by a bank uninterested in entering the cannabis market, it would have left the state’s marijuana sector with even fewer options than it already has. Other than Century, the only Massachusetts-based financial institutions known to be in the business are Northern Bank & Trust, GFA Federal Credit Union and BayCoast Bank.


“Bob was welcoming to it. I’m happy to hear that because these are good customers of ours. We want them to be well taken care of,” Sloane said.

Northern’s involvement with the cannabis industry has not been previously reported. It appears to be the second-largest financial institution in the state to enter the space, behind Century. A request for comment to the Woburn-based lender’s executives was not immediately returned. It recently posted a job for a deposit relationship manager for cannabis clients.

Cannabis Control Commission Chairman Steven Hoffman said the addition of Eastern into the cannabis industry would bring even more capacity in addition to the other banks serving cannabis clients and three additional banks he said are undergoing the due diligence to enter the market.

"Any bank servicing the cannabis business is taking some risk, given federal law," Hoffman said. "I'm grateful for those who have stepped up because they've made an incredible contribution to public safety."

A critical role

While Century’s name will soon disappear off bank branches, it will leave a legacy in the state’s marijuana sector. Without Century's initial foray into the cannabis space, there would be no cannabis industry in the state, said Jim Smith, an attorney with Smith, Costello & Crawford who does work with dozens of cannabis clients.

"Century’s role was critical and can never be understated," he said. "There was no banking here. The nearest thing we had to banking was one Colorado credit union willing to talk to people. But there was no banking here without Century. Their role was critical."

Smith remembered even walking with a client to different banks at the corner of State Street and Congress Street in Boston. Bank of America, Citizens Bank, Salem Five and Santander Bank all kicked the client out as soon as they mentioned they were a dispensary, Smith said. Yet Century was willing to talk. 

The expansion of banking under the auspices of Eastern is promising news for the industry as well, as it may encourage more entrants in the space. However, true reform won't come until Congress passes a bill to allow banks to work with cannabis companies unencumbered, according to Smith.

"This is a positive step Eastern is taking, but we have a long way to go," he said.

Cannabis company Trulieve expected to close all Mass. dispensaries.

June 5th 2023

Dispensaries in Framingham, Northampton, and Worcester are set to close in June, and all Massachusetts operations are scheduled to stop at the end of the year.

Cannabis company Trulieve is closing all of its Massachusetts locations at the end of the month, and plans to cease operations entirely in the state by the end of the year, according to a company announcement released Thursday.

Trulieve Cannabis Corp. will shutter its FraminghamNorthampton, and Worcester dispensaries, as well as an outpost in Grover Beach, California, the company announced. It will also close its manufacturing site in Holyoke.

The company has locations in nine states, and closed additional California-based stores last year.

Despite these closures, CEO Kim Rivers said in the release that she felt confident in the direction of the company.

“These difficult but necessary measures are part of ongoing efforts to bolster business resilience and our commitment to cash preservation as we continue to focus on our business strategy of going deep in our core markets and jettisoning non-contributive assets,” she said.

Trulieve previously had to pay $14,502 in OSHA fines for a violation at the Holyoke cultivation site that resulted in a worker’s death in 2022. Lorna McMurrey, 27, died from asthma complications following cannabis dust inhalation while working at the plant.

The initial fine was $35,219 before a settlement was reached for the lower amount.

Closures this year are set to affect 128 employees,

Cannabis Customers Can Now Buy Marijuana From Vending Machines In Colorado


 Coloradans who are concerned about the coronavirus pandemic can now purchase marijuana through a contactless weed vending machine at certain dispensaries.

A company called anna put up their weed vending machines this month at Strawberry Fields dispensary in Pueblo, Colo., and will put up more at Starbuds dispensary in Aurora, Colo. over the coming weeks.

The customer experience with anna is akin to self-checkouts at grocery stores and pharmacies.

Shoppers can browse in-store using anna’s touchscreen, and can also order online by scanning their QR code upon arrival at the dispensary. The new technology allows customers to check out within a minute and receive their cannabis products while also maintaining social distancing and staying safe during the ongoing pandemic.

“While the demand for this technology was around long before the pandemic, the presence of COVID-19 has certainly sped up the desire to adopt contactless payment into the dispensary process,” anna CEO Matt Frost told FOX Business. “Likewise, COVID-19 has exacerbated the long wait times often associated at dispensaries. anna allows customers who know what they want to pre-order and be in and out of the dispensary in under a minute, while freeing up budtenders to spend more time with customers who want that individualized experience.”

The new weed vending machines will add to an already thriving marijuana industry in Colorado, whose governor designated it a “critical” business at the outset of the pandemic.

Marijuana sales in May set an all-time record in Colorado with $149,186,615 total recreational sales, according to data released by the Department of Revenue’s Marijuana Enforcement Division. That record was shattered the next month in June when recreational sales totaled $158,102,628.

Shannon Gray, a spokesperson for the Department of Revenue, noted that this is part of a long-term trend, as Colorado has set new marijuana sales and tax revenue records each year for the last six years since Colorado legalized weed for recreational sales in 2014.

The state is on track to break the record again as it sold $978,350,185 worth of weed through the first half of 2020. The state saw $1,747,990,628 of sales in all of 2019.

More self-checkout weed vending machines by anna are set to open in Massachusetts in September, with plans to expand to Nevada, California and Canada next year.

"We’re only a week into deployment, but we’re excited by the interest and curiosity we’ve seen so far, and we expect customers to quickly become accustomed to using the technology as time goes on," Frost said.

Cannabis Control Commission Approves Regulations for Adult Use Delivery in Massachusetts


WORCESTER—  3-10-22 The Cannabis Control Commission (Commission) on Thursday approved draft regulations that establish two Marijuana Establishment types that would be authorized to deliver adult-use cannabis directly to consumers in the Commonwealth: Limited Delivery Licenses and Wholesale Delivery Licenses. Thursday’s meeting was part of the Commission’s ongoing deliberations to modify Massachusetts’ medical- and adult-use cannabis regulations this year.

The Commission’s development of Limited Delivery Licenses and Wholesale Delivery Licenses follows its promulgation of a Delivery-Only, Delivery Endorsement, and precertification licensing process in 2019 which received substantial public feedback during the agency’s initial 2020 regulatory review period. The Limited Delivery License represents an evolution of the Delivery-Only License the Commission had previously approved in 2019, and maintains those policies and provisions in order to keep barriers to industry entry low and support participation by applicants with limited capital. In direct response to public comment received during the initial 2020 regulatory review period, the Commission approved the new Wholesale Delivery License authorizing businesses to purchase marijuana and finished marijuana products at wholesale from Cultivators, Craft Marijuana Cooperatives, Product Manufacturers, and Microbusinesses, and sell individual orders directly to consumers. By expanding the delivery operations available to licensees, the Commission also adopted additional compliance requirements for Wholesale Delivery Licenses pertaining to wholesaling, warehousing, white labeling, and sales.

To further the agency’s mission of ensuring meaningful participation in the legal cannabis industry by communities that have been disproportionately harmed by marijuana prohibition, the Commission’s draft delivery regulations specify that both license types will be exclusively available to Certified Economic Empowerment Applicants (EEAs) and Social Equity Program (SEP) Participants for a minimum of three years. The draft regulations differentiate Limited Delivery Licenses and Wholesale Delivery Licenses from Retail Marijuana Establishments, which are required to have a storefront, and specify they would be subject to the Commission’s overarching ownership and control provisions. As a result, a single entity may be able to hold up to three Wholesale Delivery Licenses, or three Limited Delivery Licenses, or three Marijuana Retailer licenses, or three of any combination of those. Commissioner Britte McBride, who presented the draft regulations to her colleagues Thursday, noted applying these control limits enable the agency to continue defending against a small number of licensees controlling or attempting to dominate the Commonwealth’s regulated market.

Among the draft delivery regulations approved Thursday, the Commission approved:

Limited Delivery Licenses

  • Levying a $1,500 application fee and $5,000 annual licenses fee; and

    • To support unobstructed pathways into the regulated industry, all Limited Delivery application and license fees would be waived for EEAs and SEP participants in their first year of licensure under the exclusivity period; and

    • Annual license fees also would be reduced by 50%, or to $2,500, upon renewal and all subsequent years for applicants eligible for the exclusivity period.

  • Automatically converting existing Pre-Certified “Delivery-Only” applicants to Limited Delivery Applicants.

Wholesale Delivery Licenses

  • Levying a $1,500 application fee and $10,000 annual license fee;

    • Annual license fees would be reduced by 50%, or to $5,000, for EEAs and SEP participants in accordance with the Commission’s traditional fee structure.

  • Applying the same security provisions required of all Marijuana Establishments operating indoor areas to Wholesale Delivery Licenses;

    • Wholesale Delivery Licenses would be required to maintain a warehouse; and

    • Warehouses would be required to comply with limited access area regulations and have a loading area or sally port where vehicles can be securely loaded.

  • Requiring the same product storage provisions regulating all other Marijuana Establishments to Wholesale Delivery Licenses, including adequate lighting, ventilation, temperature, humidity, space and equipment;

  • Extending the equivalent Marijuana Establishment requirements related to age verification; limitations on sales; unauthorized sales and right to refuse sales or delivery; recording sales; consumer education; testing; product database; and vendor samples to Wholesale Delivery Licenses;

  • Authorizing Wholesale Delivery Licensees to white label, or affix a product label that includes the branding (name and logo) of a specific Marijuana Establishment to a finished marijuana product that was previously produced and packaged by a licensed Product Manufacturer, Cultivator, Microbusiness or Craft Marijuana Cooperative for sale to consumers;

    • White labeling may be performed by the Wholesale Delivery Licensee or the licensed Marijuana Establishment from which the wholesale originated; and

    • Vaporizer products may not be white labeled under the draft regulations to enable the Commission to implement and ensure compliance with new labeling requirements meant to strengthen public health, safety, and consumer awareness around those devices.

Once agency staff incorporate the changes Commissioners adopted Thursday, a segmented version of the draft regulations focusing specifically on delivery will be published and become subject to a public comment period from September 28 through October 15. Only feedback focused on delivery will be considered, as this will be the second opportunity for the public to weigh in on the Commission’s regulations over the course of the 2020 review cycle. View the August 3 public hearing here to access previous public comments the Commission received on the full set of draft medical- and adult-use regulations.

The Commission plans to reconvene to discuss the draft delivery regulations and public comment on October 20. For more context regarding the policies proposed for the Limited Delivery and Wholesale Delivery Licenses, video of Commissioners’ recent discussions can be found on the agency’s Facebook and YouTube pages. Draft regulations and related public meeting materials are available at MassCannabisControl.Com/Documents.
