NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Columbia Care Inc. (NEO: CCHW) (CSE: CCHW) (OTCQX: CCHWF) (FSE: 3LP) (“Columbia Care” or the “Company”) announced today it was awarded a provisional license from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission for adult use retail sales at its medical marijuana dispensary, operated under Patriot Care, at 21 Milk Street in downtown Boston. In December, the Boston Zoning Board of Appeal approved a zoning permit that allows Patriot Care to expand its existing dispensary to include a co-located adult-use dispensary.
“This exciting news brings us one step closer to our goal of offering the same product quality and integrity to the adult use community that we provide to our medical patients. As the first co-located medical and adult-use dispensary in Boston, we are committed to establishing the benchmark of deep community engagement to help make our neighborhoods stronger and more vibrant. We are eager to get started and are grateful to those who have supported us along the way,” said Nicholas Vita, CEO of Columbia Care.
With this provisional license in place, Columbia Care will move toward final licensure and permission to commence operations.
