BOSTON (CBS) – The Cannabis Control Commission approved final recreational marijuana retail licenses for four stores across Massachusetts on Thursday.
Northeast Alternatives in Fall River, Theory Wellness in Great Barrington and Temescal Wellness locations in Hudson and Pittsfield all received the green light from the commission. All four dispensaries already offer medical marijuana.
So far, two recreational marijuana shops are operating in Leicester and Northampton. Cultivate and NETA have totaled over $7 million in gross sales since opening last month.
A third pot store in Salem is set to open Saturday. Appointments at Alternative Therapies Group, which is requiring reservations, are booked until next Thursday, Dec. 20.
Retailers in Wareham and Easthampton have also secured their final licenses to sell recreational pot.
