Massachusetts cannabis advocate Frank Shaw says that his initiative to help HIV/AIDS patients afford medical cannabis is now available at Ayr in Watertown. The “Frank’s Friends” initiative is a discount program launched by Shaw in January of 2020 to help HIV/AIDS patients with financial hardships get medical marijuana at reduced prices. The Frank’s Friends discount provides those who qualify with 50% off of Ayr branded items and 20% off of all third-party products. The discount is only applicable to medical marijuana purchases.
The Ayr Watertown dispensary serves both medical marijuana patients and adults 21 years and older. Frank says that he will be at the dispensary on Saturday for the store’s grand opening celebration. The festivities begin on Friday August 12th. Ayr Watertown will have an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:40 am with the Charles River Regional Chamber followed by free tacos from Baja Taco Truck between noon and 5pm. On Saturday guests can expect swag gags, pop-up vendors, raffles, patient registration perks, bundles, and deals. The company has announced a special 30% discount on all purchases for medical marijuana patients. Is you are a new or re-certifying patient the existing 25% off discount will stack on top of the weekend deal for a total 55% discount.
