Maine’s biggest healthcare marijuana dispensary fights back against its companion


An Auburn-primarily based corporation that runs 4 of the eight healthcare marijuana dispensaries in Maine fired back at its extraction companion Wednesday by filing a complaint in Cumberland County Superior Court.

Wellness Connection of Maine filed the 33-web page civil action looking for an unspecified quantity of damages for breach of contract against CanWell, a corporation that extracts goods for edible marijuana and that has operations in Maine.

Wellness Connection, which filed the lawsuit as Northeast Sufferers Group, claimed that CanWell did not carry out extractions up to contract expectations.

For its component, CanWell filed a 51-web page “ demand for arbitration” on Aug. 21 naming Wellness Connection, along with its majority investor Acreage Holdings of New York, in a breach of contract dispute. It was filed in Kent County Superior Court in Rhode Island.

CanWell claimed, amongst other items, that Acreage and Wellness Connection breached a lengthy-standing contract by terminating it July 12. The corporation mentioned Wellness Connection owes it upward of $650,000 in item royalties and has not paid something in 2019.
