Subject: Marijuana
Affiliation: The Boston Globe
Date: March - May 2019



This Boston Globe investigation focused on the fledgling marijuana industry in Massachusetts, which had hoped to represent a new kind of capitalism with social justice priorities. Lawmakers made history when the state legalized marijuana, not because it was the first to do so, but because it was the first to codify equity goals and try to limit the expansion of big business. But early on, there were signs that state regulators were outmatched by the hidden maneuvers of large multistate operators with deep pockets.
