Time to stop having children? –

June 4, 2020 – Curbside sales of marijuana and alcohol are newly allowed in Massachusetts under emergency state coronavirus regulations meant to prop up local businesses without exposing residents to infection. The rules ban most in-store sales, and stipulate that all recreational pot purchases happen outside.

The ban on children, commissioner Shaleen Title argued during the agency’s monthly meeting Thursday, is unfair to single parents and other guardians who cannot readily leave their children with someone else. With schools and day care centers closed because of the pandemic, she said, the curbside restrictions effectively ban many parents from accessing legal marijuana.
