    Weed Update for Provincetown. Light at the End of the Tunnel….or Pipe?

    Weed Update Provincetown
    December 19, 2019

    Yes folks, we think there is light at the end of the tunnel…..or pipe.

    Curaleaf just received their State approval yesterday, so they now plan to submit to Licensing for a hearing at the end of January.

    Here is the reason for a hold up. The local Provincetown license application asked all the dispensaries for State approved Operation/Management Plans and Security Plans.  That is to make sure our Ptown Licensing board is looking at the same materials and operation as the State regulators.  It also means Provincetown gets to rely on the State experts on the details of these plans and don’t need to spend a lot of time or money trying to get third party reviews of the plans.  This will allow the Town to enforce regulations at the local level in case problems in the operation pop up mid year.

    Therefore it makes sense that they get their state approval and then apply for their local license.You can always get your updates at or

    Please see below for the stage each Dispensary is in.
