BOSTON (Associated Press) — Gambling regulators in Massachusetts are looking into the possible impact of legalized marijuana on the state’s emerging casino industry.

The state Gaming Commission has announced its requesting comments from state-licensed casino operators and the public.

The panel says it’s interested in the possible impact to employees in the workplace, the use of recreational marijuana in non-public areas and what happens when patrons or employees bring edible products containing marijuana into the hotel, retail shops and other non-gambling areas of the casino.

Massachusetts’ casino law prohibits smoking in gambling facilities, and the referendum approved by voters in November bans use of recreational marijuana in public places.

The commission is accepting comments by email or mail until Jan. 2, 2017. Massachusetts has licensed casinos by Wynn, MGM and Penn National Gaming.
