MJ Biz report…….A handful of adult-use marijuana businesses on Wednesday sued Massachusetts’ governor, seeking a reversal of his executive order requiring recreational cannabis stores to close during the COVID-19 crisis.
The lawsuit calls unconstitutional a decision by Republican Gov. Charlie Baker that adult-use marijuana stores are nonessential businesses and must remain closed until May 4.
Together, those cannabis businesses employ about 8,000 workers and generate $13 million in weekly gross sales, according to the suit.The lawsuit, filed in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston, contends the governor’s order forced 43 licensed adult-use retailers to close as well as “many more” cultivation and manufacturing facilities.
