Jamaica Plain appliance store could go to pot

Jamaica Plain News reports AAA Appliances on Centre Street, near the Monument, could be replaced by a pot shop, if approved by the city and state. The appliance store would then move somewhere else, either in JP or West Roxbury.

The zoning board last week approved a pot shop at the other end of Centre, in Hyde Square. That store still needs a state license to open.

Fantastic News!

UHub was really bumming me out today (transwoman knocked out of wheelchair and stabbed, WW2 Monument vandalized et al), but then I saw this! Hopefully I will soon be able to buy a big fat bone and stroll a few blocks over to the Pond (my favorite spot in the world) and puff puff puff! I agree with Charles Dickens when he said something to the effect of, "These are the best of times, these are the worst of times."

No to bum you out

But legally you STILL won't be able to smoke a joint at the pond. (I realize that plenty of people do this NOW, but it will still not be legal.)

Ive been toking up there for over 30 years. Remember that what happens at the Pond stays at the Pond...lolol

Just don't it around people...plenty of secluded spots.

I've bought stuff at AAA and they seemed nice

This isn't surprising though, money talks. Maybe they can move to Roslindale where Harrison used to be.

In other Roslindale retail news, it looks like our only junk store is closing, down on Poplar? Anyone ever get anything good in there?

Double the fun!

With the Hyde Square store over 1/2 mile away, JP could be one of the first neighborhoods with 2 shops.

Variety is the spice of life :-)

Wait for the NIMBY attack

Knowing a few of the supposedly true blue liberal folks on the pond side I can see some serious political pushing against a pot shop in the triple A space. That is true blue liberal when the rules apply to anyone except for themselves.

let's wait and see maybe

JPNews is very much on the "residents oppose the new fill-in-the-blank" beat, so it's interesting that it says nothing about community response.

FWIW this is one true blue JP lib who's pretty happy to be potentially getting a weed store within walking distance.

Saying Pot just sounds so baby boomer, reefer madness, Marty McFly, DARE-y its not a word any one of my friends or young people generally say.
