US (MA): Regulators suspend six licenses from cannabis company as one of its owners faces drug charges

Massachusetts cannabis regulators have suspended six licenses from a cannabis company after one of its owners was arrested last month for his alleged involvement in an illegal cannabis-growing operation.

Nova Farms LLC, which has multiple licenses in Attleboro and Sheffield, was notified by the Cannabis Control Commission on Friday that all six of its licenses had been suspended — and all its cannabis operations halted — as regulators investigate the arrest of one of its owners, Mark Rioux.

Rioux, a real estate agent, was arrested on a warrant at the end of August and charged with conspiracy to violate drug law. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Aug. 29.
