It may be a while before the smoking lamp is lit at cannabis cafes and other social marijuana consumption sites in Massachusetts.

The state's Cannabis Control Commission is holding off for at least a year to enact regulations of on premises businesses, as well as home delivery.

WBUR's Steve Brown reported for Morning Edition.
