Not all hotels or other rental accommodations are cool with consumption
For visitors who abide by the “no public consumption” rules, there are only a few options left for them as far as locations to consume their legally purchased cannabis products. While some people may be staying with friends or family in private residences, others will be staying in a hotel or other rental property. Be sure to check with any kind of rental or hotel accommodations before consuming cannabis products – whether by smoking, vaping, eating or otherwise – on their premises. Some property owners or managers are okay with cannabis use, while some are strictly opposed to consumption on their property. Don’t get kicked out of your accommodations because you didn’t follow the rules. Massachusetts currently does not license social consumption or mixed-use establishments such as marijuana consumption bars or yoga studios.

- You can’t use marijuana in any form (smoking, vaping, edibles, etc.) in public or on federal land
- You can have up to one ounce on you, but not more than five grams of marijuana can be in the form of marijuana concentrate.
- In Massachusetts, you can grow up to six plants in your home, and up to 12 plants where two or more adults reside.
- In Massachusetts, you may have in your primary residence up to 10 ounces of marijuana in addition to any marijuana produced by plants legally cultivated on the premises. Any amount over one ounce of marijuana must be locked up, and it is best to keep any amount away from kids and pets.
- Like alcohol, you cannot have an open container of any form of marijuana in the passenger area of your car while on the road or at a place where the public has access. It must be stored in a closed container in your trunk or a locked glove compartment.
- It is illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana. If you use, don’t get behind the wheel. Instead, use public transportation, ride-shares, or catch a ride with a sober friend.
- Employers, landlords, cities, and towns may have their own policies about the use of marijuana. Check with them to see what is allowed.
Marijuana is legal in Massachusetts for people 21 and older, but that doesn’t mean you can use it anywhere you want. Here are some basics about the law:
How to carry products with you while you are traveling in Massachusetts
The short answer is to carry marijuana and marijuana products in a concealed and enclosed manner. When purchasing products, they will be given to you in a sealed bag or case. This is perfect to store your products within your luggage, car or other personal property when you are in public. The idea is to keep your products secure and out of sight. When traveling with children or pets, you should be especially cautious about keeping products locked up and out of reach.
Have your ID ready
First of all, remember that you have to be 21 to purchase and consume cannabis legally. No exceptions. And there will be no fooling a dispensary or getting by without an official government issued ID the way some people get around the law when it comes to buying alcohol under age. The rules are strict with cannabis sales and your ID will be checked and rechecked before you are allowed into the establishment, let alone to make a purchase.
Driving under the influence
Driving under the influence of cannabis is illegal. Period. If you are consuming cannabis products while visiting Massachusetts, make sure there is a sober driver and never get behind the wheel after you have consumed any amount of cannabis. If you need to get from place to place after consuming cannabis, consider a rideshare, such as a cab, Uber or Lyft. Keep in mind that the impairment effects of edible marijuana may be delayed by two hours or more. Like alcohol, you may not have an open container of adult-use marijuana/marijuana products in the passenger area of your car while on the road or at a place where the public has access.
Public consumption is not allowed
While it is legal to possess cannabis products in public, any consumption of marijuana in public or smoking marijuana in an area where smoking tobacco is prohibited is also in violation of the law. Non-locals might think that Massachusetts residents walk down the street smoking cannabis like tobacco, but that is completely false. Don’t make this mistake and end up with serious consequences.
There are buying limits
There are limits for how much cannabis any person can buy at a time, regardless of whether you are a resident of Massachusetts or not. The current possession limit is one ounce, where not more than five grams of marijuana can be in the form of marijuana concentrate. That can get confusing when you are purchasing different kinds of products in a dispensary. Your budtender and other dispensary staff will be able to help guide you when making purchases to ensure you stay under the legal limit. Keep in mind that they also are prohibited from selling you more than that amount per transaction, so don’t try to convince or coerce them into selling you more. That is illegal and will land everyone involved in hot water.

Flower definitely home grown. Very dry, definitely not dispensary type weed I been smoking over 30 years and this stuff reminds Me of back in my day. Please save your money try someone else!
Regular weed not good at all does not seem to be dispensary weed lol
Today was my first experience and all I have to say was everything from responding, updating, making sure order is correct, and even apologizing for 5 min late, which to me shows they value their customers. I would recommend to many and as a bartender it is very hard to please me at 100%!! Thank you guys.
Best service in MA by far. I’ve been to lots of dispensaries and no one comes close.
Excellent product excellent staff
Very nice driver and staff for sure. really wanted to like these guys but the weed is super weak, really had no effects whatsoever even after smoking an entire blunt of the Animal Cookies strain. Also ordered the Sour Patch Gummies and literally ate the entire package in a single night and felt no effects. And for all of this, I paid over $100+ that I’ll never see again. I won’t be ordering again from them personally.
Really excited to order again this morning! The last flower I received had me stuck on my couch the exact type indica I needed!!
Many state’s with a legal cannabis industry use a “seed to sale” tracking system to keep tabs on the plants from the moment they are planted until they are sold to the customer. This helps keep things transparent for the state but also .
Placed an order. Didn’t get any confirmation. 4 hours later I get a missed call and a text saying to be an adult and cancel my orders next time so I don’t waste their drivers time. Totally rude, unprofessional experience. Would never try this place again try one of the MANY MANY MANY other places in Boston this place has ZERO customer service. If I could show the screen shots in this review I would.
