Pot shop proposed near Falcetti Music on Boston Road in Springfield

Hampden County

A cannabis company outlined its plans for a recreational marijuana facility in Springfield Thursday night. 

American Leaf hosted a community outreach meeting in Indian Orchard where they outlined their plans.

Their proposed pot shop would be located at 1755 Boston Road, in part of the building that houses Falcetti Music, next to the Eastfield Mall.

Springfield regulations prohibit these facilities from opening within 500 feet of each other.

Cannaworld has proposed a pot shop inside the former Macy’s in the Eastfield Mall.

Ellis Smith, co-founder of American Cannabis Company, told 22News, “It’s going to be a concern, as we know we need to be a certain distance from each other to operate. We feel that we’ve got a very strong location, and can serve the community in a better capacity.”

American Leaf is partnering with American Cannabis Company.

Falcetti Music would still operate in the Boston Road building.
