  • Federal law could complicate the path to legalized marijuana in Massachusetts

    WGBH - 01/09/2018

    Daniel Medwed, Northeastern law professor and WGBH legal analyst, says that creating uncertainty around an industry that already struggles to obtain the traditional tools of business, including investment and bank services, could hamper the recreational marijuana trade in Massachusetts.

    “Like any nascent, burgeoning industry, you need financial backing to be successful,” he said. “And I can imagine a lot of investors don’t like volatility, they don’t like uncertainty. So if you’re thinking about putting in a lot of money in a recreational pot shop, you might think there are less risky places to put your money.”
