With the BASK medical marijuana dispensary open in Fairhaven, many people still don't understand what it is all about. Chris McCarthy gets the answers from representatives of BASK on WBSM TV.

Tim Keogh, CEO of AmeriCann, Inc. and a BASK board member, gave some insight into the behind-the-scenes business aspects of running a medical marijuana dispensary, but he also spoke about the procedures in place to ensure that the marijuana being cultivated is the purest it can be.

JoAnne Leppanen, board member and patient education coordinator at BASK, dispelled many of the misconceptions about medical marijuna, including that those who need it should just wait for the implementation of recreational marijuana in Massachusetts. She said there is still a process to that which is being held up, whereas getting your medical marijuana card can help you with relief much faster.

Peter Glantz of Howl's Tincture shared his personal experience with becoming a medical marijuana patient, and how that led to him creating his own tinctures to help others with chronic pain and anxiety.

They also discuss other issues, such as the incoming recreational marijuana industry, and the difference between tincture and flower.
