William Delahunt, the president of Medical Marijuana of Massachusetts and a former US Representative for Massachusetts’ 10th District, is suing state medical marijuana regulators after they revoked three dispensary licenses they originally granted to his company, The Boston Globe reports.

According to the report, the company alleges in the lawsuit that the Department of Public Health changed course due to negative publicity.

The Delahunt company argues that the Department of Public Health’s reversal in June was arbitrary and capricious because it was based on publicity considerations rather than the merits of the company’s applications. It also said the health department’s about-face was without regulatory or statutory authority and without any form of due process.
