Massachusetts DPH Shuts Down Triple M Over Pesticide Use

Triple M is the second operator to be shuttered this year over pesticides

Triple M, a medical marijuana operator with dispensaries in Mashpee and Plymouth, has been ordered to close by state health regulators for using pesticides on plants on its Plymouth cultivation facility.

The state Department of Public Health (DPH) on Thursday ordered Triple M to immediately stop selling medical marijuana products and quarantine its inventory, after inspectors determined that marijuana cultivated by the company “could pose an immediate or serious threat to the public’s health, safety, or welfare.”

“The Department of Public Health has issued a cease and desist and quarantine order to [Triple M] while we look into concerns about the use of pesticides at its cultivation facility in Plymouth,” a spokeswoman for the agency said in a statement. “The dispensary is required to suspend the sale of all medical marijuana products until further notice.”

Triple M is the second medical marijuana operator to be shuttered by the state this year over pesticides; the bust follows a similar action in September against Good Chemistry, which operates a growing and processing facility in Bellingham and a dispensary in Worcester.
