BOSTON – The Cannabis Control Commission's temporary home is temporarily inaccessible due to building damage, forcing the agency to shutter its offices Monday and Tuesday.
The CCC closure is due to "impacts from water leakage that have caused air quality concerns for staff working on site."
The CCC works out of office space on the 13th floor of 101 Federal Street in Boston, one floor above the Mass. Gaming Commission.
The agency's offices were closed Monday and will remain closed Tuesday "due to unforeseen building damage," the agency tweeted. Because it is housed at Federal Street, the CCC's support line for medical marijuana patients was unavailable Monday and will remain down on Tuesday.
The CCC said patients should email CannabisCommission@mass.gov for immediate assistance.
The CCC, which has operated out of temporary offices and held hearings in borrowed spaces, expects to move into its Boston satellite office next month and get settled into its new Worcester headquarters by the end of 2019. In May, the CCC extended its lease at 101 Federal St. through December at a cost of $26,711 per month.
The Gaming Commission's offices, which occupy space on the 12th floor of 101 Federal St., sustained minor damage Monday but was being taken care of by building management, a spokeswoman said. The damage did not cause any significant disruption to the commission, she said.
