The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a proposed marijuana mart at 829 Boylston St., between the Apple Store and the Walgreens, across from the Mandarin Oriental.
The proposal by Sira Naturals now goes to the state Cannabis Control Commission for its review.
Unlike a hearing earlier in the day on a proposed cannabis shop in Roslindale, the board neither criticized the landlord nor made approval subject to the company closing on Sundays. The mayor's office and the office of City Councilor Kenzie Bok supported the proposal. The Back Bay Association, which represents neighborhood businesses, also supported the proposal, the first to which it has given its imprimatur.
