Following Success of Marijuana Shops Around Boston, Can More Navigate Regulation to Open?
Boston, MA - Marijuana store proposals are popping up all throughout and around Boston lately, but regulations and impediments are causing the process to be cumbersome.
The meetings for pot shop proposals begin tonight at 6:30 p.m. Jody Mendoza and her husband Richy Pena will be holding an outreach meeting for their proposed pot shop known as Mojos. If all goes well, the location will be at 1292 Blue Hill Avenue in Mattapan. The meeting will be held at the Mattapan Public Library.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 5, 2018, will be the second pot shop related matter addressed this week. Roslindale residents will gather together to discuss Mitch Rosenfield’s proposal for a recreational pot shop. This shop would be located at 882 South Street, Roslindale (across from Green T). Rosenfield lives around the corner from the proposed site. He has also run the clothing store known as Hempest on Newbury Street for over twenty years. Rosenfield has been on the pro side of legalizing marijuana in Massachusetts for a very long time.
This outreach meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will be held in the Roslindale Community Center.
On Wednesday, December 5, 2018, there will be an additional outreach meeting held by the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council. The council will be discussing Core Empowerment’s retail shop proposal, to be located at 401 Centre Street. This meeting will take place at 7:00 p.m.
Next week there will be one more pot shop proposal, as of now. On Wednesday, December 12, 2018, East Boston residents will gather to hear the Omnicann proposal. This pot shop will be located at 24 Porter Street in the Center Square if all goes well. The meeting will be held at 6:20 p.m. at the East Boston Social Center.
This is only the beginning. Pot shop proposals are popping up left and right and they will continue to, or so officials assume they will. As of now, officials assume these proposals will keep springing up until there is a ‘healthy’ number of shops in operation.
