Boston Cannabis Board

Boston's newly-created Cannabis Board will strengthen the City's focus on equity in the new cannabis industry.

In November 2019, former Mayor Martin J. Walsh signed an Ordinance Establishing Equitable Regulation of the Cannabis Industry in the City of Boston. This ordinance was the result of a collaboration from many stakeholders. The ordinance ensures Boston is a model for how to create a system that fosters racial equity and inclusion in the new cannabis industry. Our goal is to bring the benefit of this industry to all Boston communities. 

As part of the ordinance, the Boston Cannabis Board was established. This independent board is charged with reviewing all applicants for a cannabis license.
