Jamaica Plain's first marijuana mart - and museum - to open next week

The Jamaica Plain Gazette reports Core Cannabis Dispensary, in the Hyde Square basement where the Bella Luna bowling alley used to be, is planning a soft opening March 6 of both its dispensary and its marijuana social-justice museum.




I miss the bowling alley being right around the corner from my house, but I think this will also be a positive addition to my neighborhood.

I am always happy to see a local business succeed in Hyde Square. Traffic will likely be a bummer for a bit, but I can live with that, as there's plenty of ways to bypass many of those streets.

Won't lie though, I really miss the old Milky Way. I also miss Good Time Emporium in Somerville. I may just have a thing for slightly run-down spaces that also host good shows. It's sad that there really isn't any opportunity for places like that in the greater Boston of today. Hopefully some landlords will be ready to bargain when the pandemic lifts, and some creative options will fill the myriad commercial vacancies.

It’s about time JP finally got their Social Justice Marijuana Museum.
