The Genie’s List of Massachusetts Recreational Dispensaries

Adult-use cannabis has reached the Commonwealth! View our complete list of Massachusetts recreational dispensaries to find one near you.

Nearly twenty years after Boston’s first Freedom Rally in 1989, voters made Massachusetts the first state to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana.  We took our next steps forward when residents voted to legalize medicinal marijuana in 2012 and adult-use (recreational) marijuana in 2016. Today, Massachusetts continues to hold a place at the forefront of our nations evolving cannabis industry with the rapid opening of related businesses.

Though enjoying cannabis in your own home has been legal since December of 2016 – until 2018 there was no legal way to buy it. The first wave of legal cannabis customers were subjected to excessive wait times, scaled back menus, purchase quantity limits and even price gouging. Finally, enough Massachusetts recreational dispensaries have opened their doors to make shopping for legal cannabis a viable option for consumers instead of simply a novelty. Every region of the state now has at least two options within an hour’s driving radius. As a consumer, this affords you elevated value and customer service through the American virtue of healthy competition.
