December 14, 2018

A reserve police officer in Attleboro was the first of several dozen applicants who inquired about working for a soon-to-be-opened recreational marijuana store in Fall River.

“It’s legal and it is a growing industry. There is a lot of room for advancement. I want to get in on this,” the man said Friday, December 14, according to the Fall River Herald News.

Northeast Alternatives got approval to sell recreational marijuana on Thursday, December 13. The company plans to open a store in January 2019.

A reporter counted 80 applicants at one point Friday morning. One of them told the Fall River Herald News:  “I have a lot of family with drug problems. With legal access to marijuana, it wouldn’t be as bad for them.”
