Legalization Advocates Protest MA Dispensary Opening
For perhaps the first time in history, cannabis advocates lined up outside a new medical marijuana dispensary in Massachusetts…not to welcome it, but to protest it.
Why? Because they say a lobbyist tied to the dispensary’s parent company opposes ending prohibition on adult-use marijuana.
Lobbyist Dan Delaney, who is employed by the parent company of the Lowell, Massachusetts, dispensary Patriot Care, recently started a group that is seeking to counter a recreational legalization initiative in the state that’s expected to be on the November ballot.
Protesters also accused Patriot Care, which has three licenses in the state, of trying to create a marijuana monopoly.
