Revolutionary Clinics drops lawsuit against Cambridge over cannabis ordinance that benefits equity applicants

The medical cannabis dispensary Revolutionary Clinics has dropped a lawsuit it launched against the city of Cambridge over an ordinance that includes a two-year moratorium allowing only economic empowerment businesses to receive a permit for a recreational store.

“Rev firmly believes that the best remedies are developed through collaboration and partnership, rather than restrictions. Although we maintain our position that the moratorium in Cambridge conflicts with state law, we ultimately recognize that this legal conflict needs to end. We have decided to drop the lawsuit and will instead focus more of our time, attention, and financial resources to help build impactful equity programs in the communities we serve,” the dispensary said in a statement Thursday.
