Here’s everything you need to know about marijuana in Massachusetts.
Massachusetts law permits you to carry up to one ounce of marijuana. You may possess up to 10 ounces in your home.
You can’t mail it.
It’s illegal to drive across state lines with cannabis. It’s also against the law to transport it on a plane, train, boat, or other mode of transportation outside of Massachusetts.
It is allowed to have six plants per person with a max of 12 in a household, so if there are two people living in a house they can have 12 plants but if you go above that it’s illegal.
The Belchertown Fire Department received a call of a possible house fire and when they arrived at the home on West Street they noticed a significant growing operation allegedly run by two men from out of state.

Massachusetts Department of Fire Services Information Officer Jennifer Mieth shared with 22News an informational document that includes general guidance on fire safety while growing cannabis at home.
The two men who were arrested were arraigned in Eastern Hampshire Court Tuesday morning and will have a pre-trial conference on February 12.
