Q&A: Chair Says New Pot Regulatory Board ‘Energized’
BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts’ newly-formed regulatory board for marijuana is scheduled to meet for the first time on Tuesday. The chairman of the Cannabis Control Commission, 64-year-old Lincoln resident and former business executive Steven Hoffman, sat down with The Associated Press shortly after his appointment to talk about the challenges the commission faces in meeting timetables set out in the law that legalized adult recreational marijuana use, and some of his own reasons for accepting the post.
Responses have been edited for clarity and brevity.
Q: Given the setbacks and delays the state experienced with its medical marijuana program, is it reasonable for the public to be skeptical about meeting deadlines for implementing recreational marijuana?
A: We’re committed, we’re energized, we’re excited to get started. But until we start delivering and giving people confidence that we are going to deliver on time, I think all of that skepticism is appropriate.

Former Raider Sells Weed in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The display case just inside the front door is filled with the kind of stuff you would find at any sports memorabilia store. Frank Hawkins used to run interference for Marcus Allen back in the day, and there are plenty of signed footballs and pictures of No. 27 in silver and black.
There’s a picture of Hawkins with a former governor of Nevada, and a drawing of the late Raiders owner Al Davis with signatures from players on it. Next to them is a team photo from 1983, and a championship banner with the result of that season’s Super Bowl: Raiders 38, Redskins 9.
A few feet to the left is what is called the “smell room,” one of many signs that this is no memorabilia shop.
