Municipal Zoning Tracker

Welcome to the Cannabis Control Commission’s (Commission) municipal bylaws and ordinances tracking page. This information was collected over several months through a voluntary survey sent to all 351 municipalities across the Commonwealth.

Please note that the information reflected below regarding adult-use delivery only identifies whether it is allowed by local bylaws or ordinances. Delivery of adult-use marijuana or marijuana products by a delivery-only licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a delivery endorsement is geographically limited to the municipality identified as the Marijuana Establishment licensee’s place of business; any municipality which allows for retail sales within its borders whether or not a retailer is operational; or any municipality which, after receiving notice from the Commission, has notified the Commission that delivery may operate within its borders. Only entities that have completed the specific application process and secured a delivery license from the Commission will be permitted to deliver.

While the Commission will continue to update this page, we encourage applicants to consult with local officials in the municipality in which they plan to operate for the most up-to-date information.

If you are a municipality that wishes to update the information listed below, please contact the Commission’s Director of Government Affairs, David Lakeman, at David.Lakeman@CCCMass.com
