    Updated:

    BOSTON - Two state lawmakers from Worcester will file a bill to create a task force that would crack down on illegal marijuana sales.

    Police say the black market cannabis business is still thriving in Massachusetts because it's cheaper and more accessible. 

    Lawmakers say the proposed task force would be made up of members from Cannabis Control Commission, local and state police, the Department of Revenue and Department of Health.

    They say the group could share tips and information to maximize tax revenue and reduce youth cannabis use.
