South Shore: Second lawsuit filed against state over medical marijuana

Another South Shore applicant for medical marijuana dispensary licenses is suing the state over the denial of its applications, saying the process is flawed.

Mass Medi-Spa wants licenses to operate dispensaries in Norwell and also Nantucket, and says the selection committee incorrectly designated the company as “poorly qualified.”

The company says after paying more than $60,000 in application fees to the state, plus rent on its proposed location on Accord Park Dr. in Norwell, it wants a competent review.

The suit follows similar legal action by Medical Marijuana of Massachusetts, headed by U.S. Rep. William  Delahunt, over the denial of its applications for dispensaries in Taunton, Plymouth and Mashpee.
