CCC Suspends Retail Business At Elev8 Cannabis In MA

Adedeji can request a hearing within 21 days

The Cannabis Control Commission has suspended all retail activities at Elev8 Cannabis, following a number of incidents in which the pot shop’s owner, Seun Adedeji, allegedly posed a threat to public safety. 

According to a report issued by the commission and posted to its web site, the agency issued the licensee a Summary Suspension Order on March 24. The order took effect March 25 at 12 a.m, and required the immediate cessation of operations associated with Elev8’s Athol location and provisional licenses in Williamstown and Orange. Adedeji can request a hearing within 21 days following the date it took effect. Adedeji did not respond to a request for comment. 

“This licensee has been under Commission investigation, and Massachusetts regulations enable the agency to take additional action, including but not limited to the issuance of fines, orders that require the business to cease or suspend operations, and license revocation,” the commission wrote in a statement.

In October 2022, Adedeji was placed under arrest for charges of wanton and lascivious conduct, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, open and gross lewdness, and disturbing the peace, according to documents from Orange District Court. In late January, the last three charges were dismissed at the request of the commonwealth.
