Those Medical-pot Operators Believe The State’s Multiple Delivery Options Will Invite Additional Scrutiny And Perhaps Intervention By Federal Authorities.

According to the State House News Service, in a message to its supporters, the alliance urged the state to postpone the opening of retail marijuana outlets pending a thorough review of the commission’s policies. Medical marijuana dispensary owners, many of whom will likely enter the legalized-pot industry, also present valid arguments. They point out that states that allow recreational marijuana limit its sale to brick-and-mortar stores. But the state’s Cannabis Control Commission has proposed that pot also be sold through licensed delivery services, at cannabis “bars,” and even at yoga studios, movie theaters and restaurants. Those medical-pot operators believe the state’s multiple delivery options will invite additional scrutiny and perhaps intervention by federal authorities. Andrew Lelling, a former federal prosecutor who’s now U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, has indicated he hasn’t ruled out bringing cases against state-licensed marijuana operations. Legalized pot supporters will say medical marijuana owners want to limit the competition, which is true. However, they do make a compelling argument. And if the concerns raised by these two groups and others lead to a rewrite of the commission’s policies, then so be it.
