The Roll-Up #61: Cannabis Stores Open in Massachusetts

Daquaan Hamilton, first customer in line at NETA in Northampton
Before and After: Daquaan Hamilton was first in line at NETA on Tuesday morning. He said he showed up at 12:35 a.m. to secure the spot. By the time doors opened at 8 a.m., he had been awake for 22 hours. “I knew this is a huge step for the state and the country,” he told Leafly. “I wanted to be the first person to buy weed legally east of the Mississippi!” (Avital Norman Nathman for Leafly)

The Roll-Up features co-hosts Bruce Barcott, Ben Adlin, and Alyssa Yeoman in a Friday morning roundtable about the week’s top cannabis news.
