On Thursday, Bourne police, the Cape Cod Drug Task Force and a DEA agent acted on a search warrant after an investigation found marijuana and marijuana-related products that equaled 70 pounds – well above the 10 ounces that a medical marijuana patient is allowed to have under regulations set by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, according to records.”
The attorneys general of Nebraska and Oklahoma sued Colorado in the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday, arguing state-legalized marijuana from Colorado is improperly spilling across state lines.
