Cape Cannabis Owners Beg Commission For Help

The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission heard from store owners and product users about what they often described as a “dire situation” on The Cape.

A dispensary had to close its doors on Martha’s Vineyard. The owners told reporters at the time that they couldn’t get enough product. And that is the issue.

Under law, marijuana cannot be shipped over territorial waters.

Therefore,, getting products to some parts of the Island is almost impossible.

A lawsuit has been filed. It is unclear when that will be settled. But in the meantime, the CCC is being asked to do something to save the industry.

The issue is a hot button topic not only for recreational users but also for those with medical needs.

Commissioner Bruce Stebbins says they are considering what they can actually do that is supportable under current law.

The Commission will meet again June 13 to consider what it can specifically do.
