What is the legal status of cannabis in Massachusetts?
Voters in Massachusetts approved Question 3 in 2012, which declared that registered patients and their caregivers may possess up to 10 ounces of Marijuana on the recommendation of a physician. Cannabis may be used to treat any of the below delineated debilitating conditions, and there is no restriction on the type of marijuana or marijuana-infused product that a patient may use.
In addition, a patient may enlist a caregiver to grow cannabis if there is significant financial need. The permitted use here includes any and all CBD-dominant products. CBD oil derived from Industrial Hemp, species Cannabis Ruderalis, is 100% legal in all 50 states, as this plant never has more than trace amounts of THC, but is generally rich in CBD and other cannabinoids.
