First Marijuana Retailer In Newton Will Open On Saturday

The first recreational marijuana store in Newton will open Saturday.

It will be the 19th pot retailer to open in the state, and the second in the immediate Boston area, after one opened in Brookline in March.

Garden Remedies, on Washington Street, says it will conduct sales by appointment-only. That rule was established in the company's special permit from the Newton City Council.

The store began as a medical marijuana dispensary in 2016. Medical patients also need to make appointments.
