These accusations involve serious misrepresentations on the application of Healthy Pharms to operate a medical marijuana facility. Jajuga should answer for his role in them. But he declined to comment on the nature of his consulting work for his clients.
Scatamacchia is angry enough that he is calling for the attorney general to investigate. Perhaps Jajuga will answer to her.
It’s clear that medical marijuana is going to be big business. Last month the state Department of Public Health granted 20 provisional licenses to operate medical marijuana dispensaries across the state, from a pool of over 100 applications. The licenses are potentially lucrative for the selected companies as the state begins to allow the sale of medical marijuana after voters approved a ballot measure in 2012.
The state needs to do a better job of policing the process. It’s clear in both Amesbury and Haverhill that the public was not kept in the loop.
