The Cannabis Control Commission of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a press release this week, reminding “Massachusetts residents who may travel by boat this summer that cannabis cannot be possessed or consumed in, or transported through, federal waterways despite state legalization.” Although Massachusetts may have legalized adult use of marijuana, marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

Commissioner Jennifer Flanagan stated in the press release,

“The Commission expects adults who choose to consume cannabis in Massachusetts to know the laws, including the federal restrictions that are still in place,” Commissioner Jennifer Flanagan said. “If you are planning to take a boat ride this summer in federal waters, leave your cannabis at home. And, it bears repeating never, ever drive a boat when under the influence of cannabis, or ride with a driver who may be at risk of being impaired.”
