Earlier this week, a plan was filed with the Boston Planning and Development Agency to grow “craft marijuana” in a 20,000 square foot, three-story building in the Newmarket Square area. The pot grown will be used both recreationally and medicinally.
Last week, the Cannabis Control Commission approved this plan making Green Line Boston the first indoor-grow facility in Boston – if approved by the BPDA. This new facility will be built on lot at 100-114 Hampden Street – owned by the Signore family of Brookline Coal and Ice fame. Mario Signore, Jr., great grandson of the founder of Brookline Coal and Ice, behind the plan for locally grown cannabis business.
According to an article written by Jon Chesto in the Boston Globe, Signore – wants to be the “Sam Adams of cannabis.”
Craft beer, craft cocktails, now craft cannabis! What do you think?
