When the last of the Somerville old guard spilled over into Medford

CommonWealth Beacon takes a look at the intersection of old-school Somerville politics and new-school marijuana licensing next door in Medford - in a story that will culminate next month when a former Somerville alderman is sentenced for attempting to bribe the Medford police chief to get his client's dispensary approved in that city.

It's comforting to know that at least the company behind the bribe (perhaps unknowingly) still got their permit to operate. It's the same company which received a big fine for wage violations so clearly a good fit for the city. /s
