On November 8th 2016 the residents of Massachusetts voted to legalize recreational marijuana in the state. The bill goes live on December 15th 2016. However the first licenses for cannabis clubs in Massachusetts will not be issued until January 1st 2018.
The reason for this delay, is that the state will need to take time to give out the business licenses for legal cannabis clubs to open, and there are many other details that need to be figured out, but it is indeed happening and you will not need a medical card to purchase cannabis.
The bill, going into effect this December, will allow adults to grow 6 mature plants per household, per adult, in an enclosed, locked space. This means if you have 2 adults in your household, you are allowed 12 plants.
Adults 21 years of age or older will be able to possess up to one ounce of marijuana outside of their residence and up to 10 ounces of marijuana in an enclosed, locked space within their dwellings.
Without pot shops, you must obtain cannabis in the mean time through a “gift” program. Someone can legally give you marijuana, and you can possess it, but it is technically not legal to sell it yet. This is the same thing we saw in Colorado and Washington when they first legalized.
The cops in springfield are 50/50 about weed. most likely if you’re sitting down smokin a blunt they’ll just put it out or take it for themselves. Then some will bring you downtown to the station and book you. If your weed is bagged up though you will be arrested. But for the most part cops are more worried about crack ,coke, and gang violence.
