The first retail marijuana store east of the Mississippi could open soon in Northampton, Massachusetts.
It’s received final approval from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission, but still has to satisfy a few requirements.
New England Treatment Access has operated a medical marijuana facility in Northampton for three years and will soon start selling pot to adults out of the same location. It’s a one-story brick building near the highway.
Norton Arbelaez, the company’s director of government affairs, said that to buy pot, the first stop will be a security camera right next to the main entrance.
