State Officials Abruptly Slam the Brakes on Leafly Massachusetts Cannabis Delivery Service Listings

Leafly Boston Best Buds
Boston Best Buds is one of more than two dozen delivery services no longer listed by Leafly

Cannabis convenience through delivery is a popular option in California, but most markets don’t yet permit it.  In fact, even in California many cities are opposed. The City of Los Angeles, for example, filed an injunction against a popular service, SpeedWeed.

The Boston Globe reported that Leafly, the cannabis information resource owned by Privateer Holdings, recently suspended the inclusion of dozens of delivery services in Massachusetts on its site.  Leafly was told by the Department of Public Health that the sites were operating illegally. “Caregivers cannot sell marijuana or profit from its distribution,” the health agency said in a statement. “Anyone distributing marijuana outside of state regulations may be subject to law enforcement action.” According to the newspaper, Leafly had previously argued that the delivery services were not banned under state rules.
