According to the Boston Business Journal, Northeast Alternatives filed suit against Massachusetts cannabis regulators in Suffolk Superior Court on Sept. 14, asking a judge to force the state’s Cannabis Control Commission to act on its license application, which has been awaiting approval or denial since February.


The suit alleges that Northeast Alternatives’ application was finalized Feb. 20, when the town of Lakeville notified the commission that the company had completed all local requirements. The commission then, under state law, had 90 days to act on the application.
