Berkshire Roots wants to sell medical marijuana in Boston
Berkshire Roots has approached the City of Boston with a request to add medical marijuana sales to their East Boston facility. During a Boston Cannabis Board hearing Berkshire Roots CEO James Winokur shared that adding medical marijuana would give patients in the East Boston community local access to tax-free medical cannabis.
Winokur mentioned that Dr. Jordan Kessler is a healthcare provider that certifies patients for the Massachusetts medical marijuana program. Dr. Kessler has patients located in East Boston. Winokur explained that he and Dr. Kessler both believe it is important for patients who live within walking distance to have this option to access their medicine.
