Last week, Massachusett's Cannabis Control Commission gave final licensure to the State's first independent marijuana store - to be owned by Caroline Frankel. Frankel is going to name her marijuana shop Caroline’s Cannabis and the store will be located in Uxbridge.So far, the nine retail stores that are open in Massachusetts have been reported to be affiliated with outside companies that grow and / or manufacture their marijuana products. Caroline Frankel, on the other hand, has applied only for a retail license. Frankel stated that she will be buying her products from the manufacturers she selects. In an interview, Frankel stated that she wants her store to be a “country-inspired cannabis boutique store,” claimed an online source, Mass Live. She wants to offer products that can lean towards being home-related and garden-related. For instance, her website states that she is going to be selling signs made from reclaimed cannabis stalks. Mass Live also stated that Frankel would be selling signs that have sayings like “medicinal garden” printed on them in some fancy lettering.
