As of 8 a.m. ET, Tuesday, two MA marijuana dispensaries opened their doors to customers 21 and older seeking recreational pot, a first on the East Coast.
The two pot stores opened in the town of Leicester and the city of Northampton after MA voted to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016.
The state's Cannabis Control Commission gave authorization on Friday for Cultivate in Leicester and New England Treatment Access (NETA) in Northampton to begin recreational sales on Tuesday. Now they have opened up their menus offering loose leaves, pre-rolled joints and vape pens, as well as enhanced candy and cookies.
ME has also voted to legalize marijuana, though its first stores are not expected to open until next year.
"The Maine Department of Public Safety neither promulgates nor administers any rules applicable to either medicinal or recreational use of marijuana", Maine State Police attorney Christopher Parr said.
Several more stores could open in the coming months.
However possessing, selling or using marijuana is still illegal under federal law, opening up users to hazy legal ground, particularly if they are caught traveling with it over state lines, which is a federal offense.
Both the New England Treatment Access and Cultivate had already operated as medical marijuana dispensaries.

More than two years after MA voters approved of legalizing marijuana for adults, the state's first two fully licensed pot shops opened Tuesday in Leicester and Northampton, selling strains of the part of the plant that can be smoked; pre-rolled joints; and edibles such as brownies and chocolate bars.
The store's co-founder, Arnon Vered, thanked the mayor and offered this advice: "Remember, go low and slow".
Marijuana is already sold legally in six Western states but the long-awaited opening of recreational outlets in MA marks a major milestone for the industry in the U.S. Canada began legal sales last month as well.
Cultivate Holdings said on Instagram that its first customer was Stephen Mandile, an Iraq War veteran who was wounded in combat.
