Maverick Square is poor choice for a recreational marijuana dispensary. Context matters. Given its unique history with crime, addiction, parking and traffic --- a dispensary will likely exacerbate these issues, not improve them. Maverick Square is the gateway to our community. This area already receives heavy foot traffic which currently creates dangerous situations for pedestrians crossing the street. Many abutting businesses have voiced concerns about what this will do to their immigrant-owned small businesses. This location is also in proximity to a health center, daycares, music education for at-risk youth, a soup kitchen, multiple elementary schools, places of worship, and addiction counseling & treatment. Please join us in this fight to see a brighter future for East Boston by asking Mayor Walsh to share our vision for Maverick Square & protect it from pot shops!
