ROCKLAND — Botany, a recreational marijuana store, is open for business at 403 Main St., Rockland.

Mark Benjamin, part owner of the new store, said getting the space and service right is the most important thing.

Benjamin said Botany aims to provide a safe and comfortable space for anyone who is interested in exploring a relationship with cannabis or is just looking to buy the best products they can find in a fun, no-hassle way.

Botany soft-opened in September. The store offers a full spectrum of products, and customers do not need a medical marijuana card to visit. Customers do need a photo ID showing they are 21 or older to enter the store.

“We hope we’ve created a store that the community will feel great about,” Benjamin said.

Botany will have a public ribbon-cutting along with Ruckus Donuts and other new Rockland businesses Thursday, October 14, at 11:15 a.m.
