Massachusetts’ Marijuana Mom, Deana Martin, Sentenced in Northern Herb Federal Drug Case
Written by on October 30, 2021
The company was in full activity between 2015 and 2018 where it reaped millions of dollars in terms of revenue. It offered services to many citizens of Massachusetts through its website where it offered cannabis products for sale and delivery. Throughout this period of operations, Northern Herb did not remit any amount in form of tax because the company is unlicensed with the state of Massachusetts. Prosecutors claimed the revenue of the company between May 2016 and July 1028 exceeded $14 million on which no amount was remitted as the tax on its sales revenue. The company also operated a simple cash policy which is collected from customers and used to transact with suppliers and less than 25 workers on its payroll. During this period, the company failed to report its worker wages to the Internal Revenue Service nor issue W-2s or 1099s to its workers.
