David Williams was one of the first customers in the door after waiting outside for nearly half an hour in freezing temperatures. A #big fan of #concentrates, Williams bought six different #grams of shatter, and two varieties of #crumble. As sales began, the staff was nothing short of giddy. “It feels like a lot of hard work coming to fruition,” said Spark1 #CEO Marc Lax. “It’s crazy. We had people here an hour before we opened,” said Brian Monahan, co-owner of #Greenhouse Farmacy in #Missoula. “People were calling at 6 o’clock this morning, and we’d been here until 4:30 the night before. It was a 20-person line at 9 o’clock and has been never-ending since then.”
Montana #voters agreed to #legalize and regulate #cannabis for all adults back in the Nov. 2020 election, with the passage of Initiative 190. It became legal to possess up to one ounce a year ago—Jan. 1, 2021—but it took an extra year for #Montana’s retail licensing system to get up and running.
