The bag of marijuana that comes with it?Retail marijuana stores are months away from opening in Massachusetts, but some companies have been quietly operating for more than a year, selling and delivering marijuana via a legal loophole. Companies like HighSpeed, which describes itself as a juice delivery service, are exploiting so-called "gifting" provisions that are on the books in Massachusetts and most other states where marijuana has been legalized. At least four enterprises have done gifting business in Massachusetts since marijuana was legalized in December 2016, two of them in the Boston area, The Associated Press found in an investigation that included records gathered from law enforcement agencies around the state.Most instituted the measure specifically as part of new marijuana laws.When the AP ordered a $100 product listed as "Luxury Tshirt -- Citrus -- small," the brown paper bag delivered by a driver contained a white T-shirt with the company's name in black over an image of a marijuana leaf -- and a clear plastic bag of marijuana labeled "1/4 Ruthless OG".
