CBS Boston | First Black Woman-Owned Cannabis Dispensary On East Coast Opens In Brockton
BROCKTON (CBS) — History was made in Brockton as the first Black woman-owned dispensary on the East Coast opened its doors. Legal Greens, located on Pleasant Street, is run by Vanessa Jean-Baptiste.
She was extremely busy welcoming customers on Sunday. “It means a lot to me because we worked really hard to get to where we are at and to be open in Brockton, and to be the first fully-recreational in Brockton, then to be the first woman in Massachusetts, it’s pretty huge.”
Jean-Baptiste, who is only 30 years old, was born and raised in Brockton. She said this is a dream come true.
