A ‘tremendously fun’ opening day for Newton recreational pot shop

Shaun Connolly, a Worcester comedian, and Luke Robinson, a musician from the band Seven, were the first two customers at Garden Remedies’ grand opening for the sales of recreational cannabis products to legal customers at the Newton location Saturday morning.

Globe Correspondent Maddie Kilgannon reached out to Julia Wentworth, the company’s director of retail.

“It’s been tremendously fun — we couldn’t be happier with how today went,” Wentworth said.

Wentworth went on to say, “I think people are just so excited to finally do this and do it legally.”
