Cannabis Customers Can Now Buy Marijuana From Vending Machines In Colorado
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.
Commission Accepting Public Comment
As a reminder, the Cannabis Control Commission (Commission) is accepting public comment on the promulgation of revised adult-use and medical-use marijuana regulations, as well as the potential elimination of 935 CMR 502.000: Colocated Adult-Use and Medical-Use Marijuana Operations. The Commission has added two new documents for your review as a part of the public comment period.
Testing Requirement Petition
Under the current regulations, marijuana and marijuana products are required to be tested for certain contaminants before being sold on the market. The Commission has received this petition, Formal Petition to the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission for Amendment to 935 CMR 500.160 “Testing of Marijuana and Marijuana Products,” pursuant to 935 CMR 500.830, to amend the testing requirements for adult-use cannabis by modifying the current microbe thresholds under 935 CMR 500.160: Testing of Marijuana and Marijuana Products. The petition sets forth proposed changes to the regulations and to the testing protocol.
Vertical Integration As part of its latest regulatory review process, former Commissioner Kay Doyle considered proposed areas of regulatory change and drafted this proposal on dismantling the vertical integration of Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MTCs). In response to a public records request, and given the public interest in this issue, the Commission is seeking comment on the proposal which would allow vertically integrated MTCs subject to licensing caps under G.L. c. 94G, § 16, to apply for certain endorsements, including cultivation, marijuana product manufacturing, or retail endorsements, which are not available under its existing regulatory scheme. The Commission does not explicitly or implicitly endorse the proposal or represent that it complies with § 16. It notes that the proposal is not integrated in the draft regulations currently out for public comment. The Commission will take the public comment it receives under advisement.
Cannabis Control Commission Approves Regulations for Adult Use Delivery in Massachusetts
WORCESTER— 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.

Massachusetts to limit number of cannabis delivery licenses
Marijuana regulators in Massachusetts decided Tuesday to restrict the number of recreational cannabis delivery licenses and rejected a plan to delay delivery until 2023.
According to the State House News Service, the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission agreed to allow one business to own up to two delivery licenses – either two marijuana delivery courier licenses, or two MJ delivery operator permits or one of each.
Industry officials and advocates in the state have been discussing adult-use cannabis home delivery as a way to give social equity applicants a leg up and also provide another option that could be profitable – wholesale delivery.
Under the new rules, the delivery licenses would be available exclusively for the first three years to social equity and certified economic-empowerment applicants.
