State health officials press marijuana winners

Massachusetts health regulators took the unusual step late Wednesday of ordering companies that received medical marijuana dispensary licenses to submit sworn statements that their applications were truthful, while on Beacon Hill the House speaker called for an investigation into whether some dispensary applicants submitted false information.

The Department of Public Health in a statement raised the prospect of rejecting any of the 20 dispensary licenses awarded last month, saying, “None of the dispensary licenses are final.” The companies will now be required to “verify local support and other information provided in the application through a signed attestation to [the agency] before any final licensure is determined.”
