Martha’s Vineyard Dispensary Island Time Reopens After State Ruling

The product is getting to the Island by boat

Island Time, one of two dispensaries on the Island, reopened after a successful back-and-forth with state regulators Saturday, June 29, and saw a surge of customers. Doors were closed for 6½ weeks, starting in May. 

After Fine Fettle — the only permitted marijuana-growing operation on the Vineyard, on which Island Time relied — announced that it would close in September, and that it had stopped growing product in April, Island Time temporarily shut its doors. The transportation of cannabis over federal and state water or by plane is restricted by law. 

With no other way to get or grow product, Geoff Rose, owner of Island Time, filed a lawsuit in Suffolk County Superior Court, with the Green Lady Dispensary on Nantucket, against the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission — the agency that regulates the state’s marijuana program — to permit the immediate transport of products from the mainland to the Island.
