MA: Martha’s Vineyard is about to run out of pot. That’s led to a lawsuit and a scramble by regulators

Source: ABC News

“An 81-year-old woman on Martha’s Vineyard drove up to the Island Time dispensary last week seeking her usual order of pot. But owner Geoff Rose had to tell her the cupboard was bare — he’d been forced to temporarily close three weeks earlier after selling every last bud and gummy. Unless something changes, the island’s only other cannabis dispensary will sell all its remaining supplies by September at the latest …. Although Massachusetts voters opted to legalize marijuana more than seven years ago, the state’s Cannabis Control Commission has taken the position that transporting pot across the ocean — whether by boat or plane — risks running afoul of federal laws. … The conundrum led Rose to file a lawsuit last month against the commission, which now says that finding a solution to the island’s pot problem has become a top priority.” (06/10/24)
