What Fall River area proponents of recreational marijuana have been waiting for is likely just a few days away.
Northeast Alternatives was given the green light by the Cannabis Control Commission on December 13th to cultivate, manufacture, and sell recreational marijuana once some procedural actions were complete. According to Rich Rosier, co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer of Northeast Alternatives, that final procedural action comes this Wednesday in the form of a final inspection.
If all goes well in Wednesday’s inspection, the dispensary will open for recreational marijuana around January 14th.
NEA has been in business as a medical marijuana dispensary since June 30th. They were the first dispensary to open in the city.
The facility will be able to grow up to 5,000 square feet of marijuana canopy.
The dispensary will be the first recreational marijuana facility in Bristol County.
The company is encouraging customers to use an app to schedule a time to shop to help ease traffic once recreational sales begin along with information that will be available on their website.
More details will be available in the coming days.
