Can an existing store also sell marijuana?

If an existing store is compliant with all the zoning regulations, undergoes a rigorous Site Plan Review process with the Police, Fire, Health, and Transportation Departments, is granted a Special Permit by the Board of Appeals, is issued a license from the Select Board and a license from the CCC, then Yes. However, State laws have certain restrictions. For example, alcohol and Marijuana cannot be sold together, Marijuana products must be separated from other non-Marijuana products and not accessible to those under the age of 21, among other rules.
