New details emerge in Trulieve factory death

This week we learned of the tragic death of Trulieve factory worker Lorna McMurrey. McMurrey, 27, who worked at a factory in Holyoke, Mass., suffered a fatal respiratory attack in January after inhaling cannabis dust during her shift.

  • A co-worker of McMurrey’s who was at the factory the night she died, told WeedWeek that an understaffed security team, and confusion over emergency protocols, delayed the rescue effort. 

Trulieve released a statement but said it would not comment on the circumstances of her death.

Additional update:

  • Neither Trulieve nor Massachusetts’ regulator, the Cannabis Control Commission, would comment on whether regulators were aware of McMurrey’s death before it gained attention on social media in late September.

Job Moves:

  • Maine’s top regulator Erik Gunderson is leaving his role to pursue “a national consulting opportunity.” He’ll be replaced on an interim basis by his deputy Vern Malloch.
