    A third marijuana retailer has been awarded a final license by Massachusetts regulators, but no pot shops have opened yet in the state.

    The Cannabis Control Commission on Thursday approved the license for Pharmacannis Massachusetts, of Wareham. The company operates a medical marijuana dispensary in the town and hopes to begin selling recreational marijuana as well.

    The commission earlier approved final licenses for retail sales to New England Treatment Access, in Northampton, and Cultivate Holdings, in Leicester. Those stores are expected to be the first in the state to open for adult recreational customers—likely within the next two weeks.

    Before opening, operators must register all their employees with regulators and enter product inventory in a state database.

"I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
