Smoke On The Water: “Cannabis stores on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket filed a lawsuit against Massachusetts regulators to allow wholesale marijuana delivery to the islands for resale to consumers.”

MJ Biz report

Cannabis stores on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket filed a lawsuit against Massachusetts regulators to allow wholesale marijuana delivery to the islands for resale to consumers.

According to the lawsuit filed against the Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) in Suffolk County Superior Court, Geoff Rose, owner of Island Time, and Nantucket-based Green Lady Dispensary are seeking an allowance for interisland cannabis transportation via boat, The Martha’s Vineyard Times reported.

Transporting marijuana across federal waterways – defined as water more than 3 nautical miles from land – is prohibited and punishable under federal law.

According to the newspaper, the lawsuit was prompted by wholesale marijuana shortages as Martha’s Vineyard’s only grower, Fine Fettle in West Tisbury, plans to close later this year.

Fine Fettle already has stopped growing plants on Martha’s Vineyard, the newspaper reported.
