BOSTON (AP) - Marijuana regulators may be closer to issuing the first retail license to sell recreational pot in Massachusetts.

The Cannabis Control Commission is slated to consider on Monday recommendations from its staff on a retail application submitted by Cultivate Holdings of Leicester (LES’-tuhr).

The company currently operates a medical marijuana dispensary in the Worcester County town.

Even if a provisional license were to be issued, it’s unclear how long it would take for retail sales to begin at the site.

The state’s voter-approved recreational marijuana law called for pot shops to open on Sunday, but the commission has yet to award any retail licenses. Local concerns about the stores and the lack of any marijuana testing facilities required under the law are among factors cited for missing the July 1 target date.
