BOSTON — It’s been five years since recreational marijuana became legal in Massachusetts. In that time, the Cannabis Control Commission has granted 249 final licenses and 122 marijuana retailers have opened in the state.
Since November 2018 sales have grossed $1.45 billion, generating more than $90 million in sales tax alone to the state.
As the state grapples with this evolving industry, Boston 25 News is examining how the system is working.
