Boston’s first recreational marijuana dispensary will open Monday

Nearly 40 months since Massachusetts voted to legalize marijuana, Boston is getting its first recreational pot shop.

Pure Oasis, an adult-use marijuana dispensary located in the Grove Hall neighborhood of Dorchester, announced that it plans to open Monday at 11 a.m., after the state’s Cannabis Control Commission issued the store a commence operations notice Thursday morning. The dispensary is also the first application to come through the CCC’s economic empowerment program, which offered a faster review process to entrepreneurs from communities hit hardest by the war on drugs.

“We are excited to reach this important moment where we will open our doors as the first retail cannabis business in Boston and as the first economic empowerment candidate in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,” Kobie Evans and Kevin Hart, the co-owners of Pure Oasis, said in a joint statement Thursday morning, thanking the CCC, city officials, and their community for their support.

Located at 430 Blue Hill Ave., the dispensary received its final license from the CCC last month and is slated to become the state’s 40th store to sell recreational marijuana. A spokesman for Pure Oasis says the company will hold a press conference Friday to provide more details on their opening plans. [Read more at Boston.com]
