Marijuana dispensary seeks special permit from Quincy zoning board – The Patriot Ledger

QUINCY − The developers planning a recreational marijuana store on Brook Road will ask the zoning board of appeals for a special permit Tuesday night.

Co-owners Maggie Suprey and Eleanor Winship told The Patriot Ledger they hope to open the women- and LGBTQ-owned Wildflower Cannabis at 159 Brook Road, a small lot in an industrial zone that currently holds construction equipment and vehicles, within a year.

“It’s about providing valuable jobs but also a good community partnership with the city of Quincy,” Winship said.

Suprey said, “We’re feeling really optimistic to get before the board, to present what we’ve worked really hard for a really long time on.”

Two cannabis stores already operate in the city: Quincy Cannabis Co. on Washington Street and the medical dispensary Panacea Wellness on Ricciuti Drive.

Two more recreational stores have come before the board since last summer. In August, a Braintree pharmacist received a special permit to open Pinnacle Cannabis at Water and Liberty streets, less than a quarter-mile from the Wildflower site. In December, the owner of a store in Cohasset got approval to open Chill and Bliss in a former Burger King at 503 Quincy Ave.
