Holyoke city councilors discuss future inspection program for cannabis companies
HOLYOKE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - On Tuesday night, city councilors passed a motion regarding the cannabis industry in Holyoke that will now be sent to the mayor.
That measure calls for marijuana mitigation fees to be used to set-up an inspection program in the future.
The goal is to ensure health and safety regulations are followed.
The decision comes after the death of an employee who worked for Trulieve in Holyoke back in January.
Trulieve told Western Mass News, in a statement: “Trulieve welcomes this step. We are proud of our facility and the work done there. We intend to lead our industry to set best practices and will work cooperatively with the Holyoke City Council.”
