Amherst recreational marijuana shop receives OK to open


Western Massachusetts is getting another recreational marijuana shop.

Rise Holdings Inc. can open its marijuana shop in Amherst as early as this Sunday after the company received its “commence operations notice” from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission Wednesday. The store is located at 169 Meadow St. in Amherst.

Assuming the store opens soon, it will probably be the 18th adult-use store to open in the state.

Rise also operates in several other states, including Florida, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
