What’s up witches! The biggest tourist season for Salem is upon us and that means throngs of tourists are flooding into the streets of The Witch City. But, ghosts and witches aren’t the only things to do in Salem Massachusetts. You may have heard that Massachusetts has a very progressive view on marijuana legalization, but here’s the question: can you buy marijuana as a tourist at a Salem dispensary this Halloween?
I know this is an issue near and dear to my heart, so I whipped out my grinder, grabbed my lighter, and dug in for the answers. My research has been vetted by some of Salem’s licensed sellers, so you can trust this is THE place for accurate marijuana information. Alright, enough build up, here are the questions and answers you care about.
Is there a marijuana dispensary in Salem, Massachusetts?
Yes! Not only is there a very fine dispensary, but it sells both recreational and medical marijuana.
Can I buy recreational marijuana in Salem Massachusetts?
You sure can! You can check out the dispensary’s inventory on their website, this includes pricing. Here’s what you need to know before heading to the shop:
- Salem’s breakout dispensary is Alternative Therapies Group.
- They are located at 50 Grove Street Salem, Massachusetts 01970. This is about a ten minute drive or 25 minute walk west (heading past the Witch House coming from downtown) from the main Essex St. drag in Salem.
- You’ll need a valid State ID (any US state will do) showing that you are over 21 years of age to purchase recreational marijuana from ATG.
- You’re allowed to make a single purchase per day.
- You can purchase up to one ounce of marijuana flower per visit, this is the state limitation.
How does medical marijuana work in Salem?
If you have a Massachusetts state medical card, you’re good to go. Unfortunately, if you have a medical card from another state, you won’t be able to use it to purchase medical cannabis.
Are there any Halloween products for sale?
Alright, so maybe I’m the only one asking this question, but the answer is yes! The shop has some gorgeous pumpkin-shaped glass pipes for sale during the 2019 Halloween season, courtesy of Salem’s Witch Dr.
