April 20, 2018
Martha’s Vineyard – Island businessman Geoff Rose who plans to operate the Island’s first and only licensed medical marijuana dispensary and cultivation facility has officially shown interest in obtaining a license to sell recreational marijuana as well.
An application from Patient Centric of Martha’s Vineyard, owned by Mr. Rose, was submitted on April 3, according to Cannabis Control Commission records and was granted the certification on April 10.
Mr. Rose is licensed to sell medical marijuana in West Tisbury but declined to say what town he might consider for recreational sales. If he does apply for a marijuana establishment license, the commission has 90 days to review the application once all required documents are submitted. The municipality has 60 days after the application is submitted to notify the commission of any issues with local ordinances or bylaws.
