License OK'd for Boston's first pot shop

One of the state's coveted medical marijuana licenses has been approved


  for Milk Street in the heart of the Financial District at the site of a former bank, public health officials announced today.

The Department of Public Health announced four additional Registered Marijuana Dispensaries (RMDs) have been approved to advance to the "Inspection Phase" -- including Patriot Care Corp. for its pot shop at 21 Milk St.
The shop, the company said, will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“I am pleased with the steady progress we are making and expect the first dispensaries to open later this winter,” said Medical Use of Marijuana Program Executive Director Karen van Unen. “By expanding access into these additional counties, we are promoting our goals of patient access and public safety across the Commonwealth.”

Those dispensaries are:

  • Coastal Compassion, Inc. in Fairhaven
  • Mass Medicum Corp. in Taunton
  • Patriot Care Corp. in Boston and Greenfield
