Marijuana retailer to allow walk-ups for Wareham residents, workers on Feb. 18
Wareham residents interested in buying recreational marijuana products from Verilife will be able to skip the shuttle bus and walk directly to the dispensary starting on Monday, Feb. 18.
Verilife, which has been selling medical marijuana to patients since June of 2018, became the fourth store in the state of Massachusetts to sell marijuana for recreational use on Dec. 21 of 2018. Due to high interest and limited parking, however, walkups to the store have not been allowed.
Instead, prospective Verilife customers have been required to park at the Tremont Nail Factory and catch a shuttle bus, placing their orders online before arriving at 112 Main St.
“The Wareham community has been very patient with us,” said Verilife Executive Director Shelley Stormo. “So we’re extremely excited to start giving the people who live and work in town a chance to jump directly in line.”
Stormo said that Wareham residents with proof of address, such as a drivers license or lease, will be allowed to join the line at the store without checking in and taking the shuttle bus from Tremont Nail. The same goes for individuals who work in Wareham, so long as they can provide proof of employment.
“Our out of town customers will still be required to park at Tremont Nail and take the shuttle,” Stormo said. “We plan to keep the shuttle in place for as long as we need to.”
Verilife recently expanded its hours for medical patients, who are allowed to park at the store. Medical sales run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. while recreational sales take place from noon to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
Stormo said Verilife would be looking to expand its hours again in April.
