Rolling in the green: Brookline has received nearly $8M in marijuana revenue
Brookline’s budding marijuana industry is proving lucrative for the town: Since fiscal year 2017, marijuana retailers have paid out more than $4.7 million in community impact revenue, plus an additional $3 million from sales taxes.
The local pot industry began with Brookline Village’s New England Treatment Access, which opened the town’s first medical marijuana dispensary in 2016, following it up with the introduction of adult-use marijuana in March 2019.
Coolidge Corner’s Sanctuary Medicinals followed in August 2020, and Mission MA opened its Commonwealth Avenue location in August this year. Both Sanctuary and Mission offer only recreational marijuana.
