Town to negotiate marijuana host community agreement with Trade Winds
The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to allow the town to negotiate a host community agreement with Trade Winds, a cannabis courier company affiliated with Trade Roots.
“This is just so that he can get a courier license from the state that would allow him to deliver from his store, basically,” said Teitelbaum.
The company would be owned by the same people as Trade Roots, a provisionally-licensed marijuana grower, manufacturer and retailer located at 6 Thatcher Lane, and would only deliver products sold by Trade Roots.
A marijuana courier license allows direct delivery to consumers of marijuana products, accessories and branded goods.
All sales would be made by Trade Roots. Trade Winds would in turn receive a small fee for delivery.
Delivery would only be allowed to take place between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m., but that window could be further restricted by the town.
Deliveries would be limited to Wareham and other towns that allow retail sales of cannabis or delivery of cannabis.
Unlike marijuana delivery operators, couriers aren’t allowed to sell products directly to consumers, and may not warehouse, wholesale, process or repackage goods.
Pitts said that, if possible, the products sold through Trade Winds would cost the same as those sold in store.
Alan Slavin said the Trade Roots dispensary is expected to open in the next two to three weeks.
