Two marijuana businesses could lose their licenses and be barred from the industry, one for up to 10 years, under the latest round of complaints authorized against marijuana companies by the state Cannabis Compliance Board on Tuesday.
The board approved two additional complaints, one that would slap a 30-day suspension and fine a third company, and another that would fine a fourth. In all, the four companies could see fines assessed totaling more than $100,000.
