NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) - On Sunday, Tapestry Health held a fundraiser in Northampton. But they also talked about the new medical marijuana law in Massachusetts.
Health officials have been holding hearings across the state to try and figure out how to best regulate dispensaries. The last day for input is Monday.
Tapestry Health says they're interested in being a place where people can go to get medical marijuana, but they say under the law, they may not be able to.
"At this point we really hope that the final regulations will afford public health organizations like Tapestry to be purveyors of medical marijuana, not profiteers who are coming from Colorado or California or those who just want to make a bundle of money as distinct from those who are committed to this for public health," said Tapestry Health President Leslie Tarr Laurie.
Tapestry Health has been offering care to patients for 40 years.
The medical marijuana would be given to patients with debilitating conditions like cancer or HIV.
