Wareham Marijuana Dispensary Opens
A new medical marijuana dispensary has opened in Wareham.
Verilife, at 112 Main Street in Wareham, held a grand opening Wednesday, May 30, at the new dispensary.
The company, doing business as Compassionate Care Clinics, had originally proposed a growing facility in Bourne in 2015, but eventually withdrew the application. At the time, executive director and chief executive officer Shelley Stormo told the Bourne Board of Selectmen that the MacArthur Boulevard facility would be an indoor cultivation and processing center only, and there would not be any sales or distribution.
The new Wareham facility is competition for Triple M dispensary in Mashpee, the only company on Cape Cod approved by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for the sale of medical marijuana so far. Triple M opened on Echo Road in April.
Ms. Stormo is a Falmouth native who attended Falmouth Academy.
