BOSTON, Mass (WBZ NewsRadio) — The first two recreational cannabis stores -- are almost ready to open their doors and sell legal marijuana to adults in Massachusetts.

NETA in Northampton and Cultivate in Leicester will soon be the first to sell retail cannabis on the east coast.

Chairman of the Cannabis Control Commission, Steve Hoffman tells Nightside with Dan Rea -- the stores have one final move to make before they can start sales.

“We have three final licenses that have been issued to retailers and the eh only thing that’s remaining before they get to open is that is that they have to put their inventory into our tracking system,” Hoffman said.
