Recently I have had conversations with a number of people that I never thought would come around to the legal use of marijuana.  It seems as if a light switch was thrown and all of a sudden, the “Just Say No” campaign flipped to “Yes Please.”  Many politicians past and present that spoke against the legalization have not only seen the light but also the green now supporting the sale of recreational marijuana and in some cases also investing in the cannabis industry.

Last year Massachusetts collected more revenue from the excise tax on weed than the sale of alcohol.  The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission reported 2021 revenue of over $74 million from the sale of cannabis and just over $51 million from the sale of alcohol.   The sale of recreational cannabis went into effect in Mass last November of 2018.  Surpassing alcohol’s excise tax revenue in just 3-years is an indication of how high the market is for nature’s finest.

Today there are many ways to consume cannabis. While customer service is lacking in most retail establishments, that is not the case in the cannabis industry.  Dispensaries put a great emphasis on customer service.  You will find very knowledgable staffers available to answer all your questions on the products and the best delivery system to use to suit your needs.

Here in the Berkshires cannabis connoisseurs have plenty of legal options to purchase their favorite form of marijuana.  In no particular order below is a current list of dispensaries in the Berkshires that can take care of all your cannabis needs.  We apologize in advance if a Berkshire dispensary was omitted.  Must have been stoned and we missed it.  Please drop us a note if we have.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
