Sean Thomas , Scarborough, Came to Congratulate the Owner on His Store.

“My family and I enjoy the Old Port. We just walked past the store and decided to come in and congratulate them on their opening. I’ve been a supporter over the past two years as I’ve become more educated about the industry. We are talking about a product that’s been sold on the black market without any regulation and the state has not seen any benefit from taxation. It’s been a long hard fight,” said Sean Thomas.
