Marijuana shops in Marlborough, Amherst get retail license approval; Cannabis Control Commission denies Pittsfield growing operation

Exciting news for GRI!  Garden Remedies in Marlborough received approval for a final retail license from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission, the last necessary step to open a retail marijuana shop.

Garden Remedies, reported as the only cannabis company founded and led by a female physician, Dr. Karen Munkacy, is transforming a storefront at 416 Boston Post Road in Marlborough into a marijuana shop that will offer product for both medical patients and  recreational users. The company has a dispensary in Melrose and is working toward another retail location in Newton.
