Chicopee, Massachusetts is set to host Hampden County’s first recreational cannabis retailer after the Cannabis Control Commission granted a license to Mass Alternative Care, the Reminder reports. The company already sells medical cannabis; adult-use products will be sold in the same building but in a separate area due to different sales systems and tax rates.

Nathan Moreau, spokesperson for Mayor Richard Kos, indicated that recreational sales would not begin for a few weeks, as regulators still need to conduct final inspections of the facility.

Chicopee is also considering approval for Green Meadows Farm, who last week hosted a community outreach presentation on the proposal. Green Meadows, which shifted from organic vegetable farming to cannabis cultivation in 2017, plans to open a dual-use facility for both recreational and medical cannabis.
