Massachusetts Tops $2.2 Million in Marijuana Sales in First Five Days

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

 

Sold more than $2.2M in less than a week

Massachusetts reported $2.2 million in gross sales of marijuana in its first five days of legalization, according to the Commonwealth's Cannabis Control Commission. 
During the five days, over 56 thousand units were purchased, with an average of 3.4 units per transaction -- and the average spent per unit was just under $40.

First Week Fever - and Traffic Jams

On Tuesday, the Boston Globe reported, "New pot shop’s neighbors say traffic jams are awful," of the store "Cultivate" in Leicester. 
At an emergency meeting at Town Hall Monday night, dozens of angry residents excoriated elected officials and executives from the local marijuana store — Cultivate, one of just two currently operating on the East Coast — for failing to adequately control the hordes of cannabis consumers and curiosity-seekers who have descended on this small town outside Worcester.
Among their complaints: long lines of traffic, closed streets and detours, pedestrians trekking along a highway with no sidewalk, litter, public urination and pot consumption, overly aggressive shuttle bus drivers ferrying customers to and from a nearby parking lot, and poor communication from Cultivate.

Rhode Island Eyes Legalization -- Again


Jared Moffat with the Marijuana Policy Project joined GoLocal News Editor Kate Nagle on GoLocal LIVE on Tuesday, to talk about the prospects of the legalization of marijuana in Rhode Island in 2019. 
"I think at this point, there are still folks who disagree with legalization, and we can debate a lot of different aspects of it, but I think everyone is able to make an informed decision about whether or not they agree with it," said Moffat. 

"I think that's going to be one our biggest arguments during the upcoming Rhode Island General Assembly session..we've waited long enough.  There's really no excuse to delay a vote," said Moffat.
