Within a primary residence, an adult may possess up to 10 ounces of marijuana and any amount cultivated at the premises. An adult may grow six plants at her residence with a limit of twelve total plants per residence.

Massachusetts is currently accepting applications for recreational marijuana business licenses.

 Massachusetts requires two-tiered approval for cannabis businesses.  Cannabis businesses must apply for a license from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission, but the Commission will not grant a license until the business has obtained approval from the city or town in which it will operate. Applicants are also subject to a background check.
