Could the Long Wharf stage that hosted performances by Sam Waterston and Anna Deavere Smith become a spot to purchase ​“Mellow Bar” cannabis chocolates and ​“Infused Rocket” pre-rolled joints?

That possible future won a vote of support from an aldermanic committee that greenlit the legal sale of marijuana on Long Wharf — including on an industrial stretch of Sargent Drive where a Massachusetts-based cannabis dispensary hopes to move in to the longtime, soon-to-be-former home of Long Wharf Theatre.

The vote came Tuesday night at a Board of Alders Legislation Committee meeting, which was held in person in the Aldermanic Chamber on the second floor of City Hall. The meeting was also live video-streamed online via the alders’ YouTube account.
