Massachusetts regulators signed off on preliminary plans for recreational marijuana home delivery, but the program would limit participation in the first two years to applicants that fit under the state’s social equity and economic empowerment provisions.

The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission voted 4-1 to give initial approval to the policy, which could begin later this year after regulations are adopted and a final vote taken, The Boston Globe reported.

The social equity and economic empowerment provisions are designed to help small MJ entrepreneurs from areas of the state that were disproportionately affected by past enforcement of cannabis laws.
