Here are some of the most frequently asked weed delivery questions + answers in MA.
Weed is legal for both medical + recreational use in Massachusetts (!!). MA legalized medical use in 2012, then legalized recreational weed in 2016 for adults over the age of 21. The state is controlled by the MA Cannabis Control Commission (or CCC). Keep in mind, whether you are a recreational or medical weed consumer, you can only consume on private property + never in public.
You can order weed online in Massachusetts, but delivery is only allowed in certain areas. MA has 351 cities, + each location has its own bylaws for retail cannabis sales + delivery. As of June 2022, 124 cities had an outright ban on delivery, but these bylaws are fluid + continually changing. In cities where delivery is permitted, you must be at least 21 years old with a valid, government-issued I.D. to order cannabis delivery on Lantern.
Both order minimums and delivery fees are determined by our dispensary partners and delivery couriers. Why? This helps offset the costs associated with delivery.

Per Massachusetts law, only home deliveries are allowed; deliveries to dorms, hotels, and/or subsidized housing is not permitted.
