The state’s head cannabis regulator wants to set the record straight — a Salem marijuana dispensary that closed for recreational sales this week is not out of marijuana flower, as it claimed. The store simply recorded its inventory incorrectly.
“It’s not a physical inventory issue. It’s literally a recording issue, and it’s a data-entry issue,” said Cannabis Control Commission Chairman Steven Hoffman, speaking to press after a commission meeting on Thursday.
“I’m not going to get into who said what to whom, but the data was not entered correctly. I think it is easily fixable,” he said.
