CBD Legal States Policy

Medical Cannabis Policy State by State: Massachusetts

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.

Eligible Conditions:

  • ALS
  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Hepatitis C

  • multiple sclerosis

  • Parkinson’s disease

  • and other conditions as determined in writing by a registered physician
