    The Lynn City Council is reportedly facing a lawsuit from the town of Saugus for allowing a recreational marijuana shop on the town line.

    According to the Daily Item, court documents show the suit alleges that a small part of the building meant to house the shop, a third of the deck, most of the parking spaces and a dumpster are in Saugus, where recreational pot stores were made illegal in 2016.

    The suit, brought by the Saugus Board of Selectmen, was called a "waste of taxpayer money," by Sam Vitali, an attorney representing Massachusetts Green Retail, the Daily Item reports.

    "Saugus voted against marijuana and they adopted a bylaw within their town," Vitali told the Daily Item. "Unfortunately, it’s not the republic of Saugus. It’s the town of Saugus."
