How Alternative Therapies Group courted officials

Salem: Letters could be key to medical marijuana outfit's success


“As a gesture of their positive intentions, they have offered, unprompted, a Community Host Agreement in which they will donate $50,000 per year to the city of Salem for traffic mitigation and health and wellness programs, such as our Salem Mass in Motion program,” Driscoll wrote.

Good Chemistry did not make a similar offer.

The Zoning Board of Appeals is scheduled to consider issuing Alternative Therapies Group a special permit at its meeting on Feb. 19.
