The Boston Examiner reported on Sunday that nine of the 20 medical cannabis preliminary certifications in MA have been rescinded. According to the Examiner, “Massachusetts ran onto some problems when it was discovered that some applications contained erroneous information and others noted board and executive level participation from people with previous criminal convictions.”
Of the nine, three licenses were rescinded because the applicant companies were found to have ties to William Delahunt, a former state legislator. Two companies had received certification to operate in Boston, including a subsidiary of Denver’s popular Good Chemistry dispensary in Capitol Hill. The company got initial approval in three different counties, but they lost it for making misleading statements about having local support.
