It’s got the neighborhood people very unhappy…..
The shop owners and the state are gonna make a LOT of money….
More legal marijuana stores will be opening in the coming months in the state…
“Hell.” “Absolute mayhem.” “Havoc.” “Ground zero.”
At an emergency meeting at Town Hall Monday night, dozens of angry residents excoriated elected officials and executives from the local marijuana store — Cultivate, one of just two currently operating on the East Coast — for failing to adequately control the hordes of cannabis consumers and curiosity-seekers who have descended on this small town outside Worcester.
Among their complaints: long lines of traffic, closed streets and detours, pedestrians trekking along a highway with no sidewalk, litter, public urination and pot consumption, overly aggressive shuttle bus drivers ferrying customers to and from a nearby parking lot, and poor communication from Cultivate.
“This has been terrible,” Dawn Gauthier, a Leicester resident who lives near Cultivate, testified at the meeting. “We have cars outside of our house seven days a week, 12 hours a day. We have no life there anymore. It’s like living in a fishbowl. . . . It’s not fair.”
