Taunton can start issuing retail marijuana licenses again after court victory

The Massachusetts Appeals Court has cleared the way for Taunton to start issuing retail marijuana licenses again.

Associated Justice John Englander on Monday vacated an injunction issued by the Land Court that had temporarily prevented the city from issuing any of its four remaining licenses.

The injunction was issued last month on behalf of Bask Cannabis, which is appealing the city’s denial of a special permit to open a retail marijuana shop on Route 44. Applicants must obtain a special permit before they can be granted a license.

The city previously set a cap of five licenses and has already issued one.
