MA blames cannabis retailer, not traceability system, for product shortage

Massachusetts’ marijuana czar disputes a claim by a Salem cannabis retailer this week that flaws in the state’s traceability system caused the store to run out of flower.

Steven Hoffman, chair of the state’s Cannabis Control Commission, said the problem stemmed from an error made by Alternative Therapies Group (ATG), which incorrectly logged its inventory, The Boston Globe reported.

According to Hoffman, ATG unfairly blamed the state’s seed-to-sale tracking system, Metrc, after halting sales of adult-use cannabis flower.

The problem, he said, “is easily fixable” by the retailer.

    It’s March-30, and they have 10 items left in the site. Staff is thoroughly deflated … they know nothing about when this “data” problem will be resolved.

    I think they’re going down …. they certainly have lost medical customers.
