IN MASS. LEGALIZATION PADS COPS’ COFFERS

Equity programs have struggled to gain traction in Massachusetts (as elsewhere), but one population seems to be thriving on legalization in the state: cops.

  • The Boston Globe reports dispensaries are paying cops to work additional shifts.
  • The piece notes, state “Marijuana companies complain that local officials frequently require (or pressure) them to spend large sums on traffic details that are unnecessary, intimidating, or both.”
  • A bill in Massachusetts would require equity programs to receive as much pot tax revenue as police training.
