    Massachusetts City Approves Marijuana Ice Cream Maker

    This Jan. 28, 2019, file photo shows marijuana buds ready for harvest in Akron, Ohio. A study shows marijuana is sending more people to the emergency room in one large Denver hospital. Inhaled weed caused the most severe problems. Marijuana-infused foods and candies also led to trouble.

    The city of Framingham has cleared the way for a marijuana-infused ice cream maker, among other cannabis businesses.

    MetroWest Daily News reports that Cloud Creamery, an ice cream producer run by Boston chef David Yusefzadeh, passed the city's screening process.

    Yusefzadeh reportedly plans to make cannabis-infused ice cream for hospitals, other medical facilities and dispensaries.

    The city also green-lit Cultivate Holdings, LLC and Innovative Flower, LLC, both dispensaries, and Caregiver-Patient Connection, a marijuana grower and product manufacturer, according to MetroWest Daily News. All four businesses will now negotiate host community agreements with the city.

    The city instated a cap of six on the number of dispensaries that can open in the city last year. Now, only two more dispensaries can be approved. This law does not apply for other marijuana-related businesses.
