BOSTON - Following the opening of the state's third retail marijuana store this weekend, the CCC announced Monday they've issued two more recreational licenses.
According to a tweet, I.N.S.A., Inc. in Easthampton and Verilife (Pharmacannis Massachusetts Inc.) in Wareham were given the final OK to start selling recreational marijuana, becoming the 4th and 5th pot shops to open in the East Coast.
Today @MA_Cannabis issued notices authorizing I.N.S.A., Inc. in Easthampton and Verilife (Pharmacannis Massachusetts, Inc.) in Wareham to commence retail operations and open in a minimum of three calendar days (Friday, 12/21 or later).— MA Cannabis Control Commission (@MA_Cannabis) December 17, 2018
Verilife, which has been operating as a medical marijuana dispensary since 2015, was initially set to open on Monday, Dec. 17, but citing "unexpected delays at the state level" announced their opening day had been postponed.
Now, with the CCC's licensing approval, both Verilife and I.N.S.A., Inc will be able to begin retail sales as early as Friday, Dec. 21.
There were no updated sales figures available for Alternative Therapies Group in Salem since their grand opening on Saturday, Dec. 15.
