KINGSTON – Looking inside the locked glass cases, customers can see for themselves examples of the flowers, edibles, topicals, seltzers and other products Elevated Roots sells.

Kingston’s first recreational marijuana dispensary opened last week and will have a grand opening April 20, a holiday for marijuana enthusiasts.

Co-owner Bobby Palma said theirs is a new business that he’s passionate about and it was exciting to open up for the first day of sales April 7 at 44 William C. Gould Jr. Way.

“Each customer that came in was kind of awestruck and blown away by the way it looked, so that made me feel good, and how smooth everything went made me proud of my management team and everybody who put so much time and effort into it over the last three years to get us open,” he said.
