Board gives nod to West Roxbury medicinal marijuana dispensary under a sex-toys shop and a liquor store

The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans for a medical dispensary in the basement of 1524 VFW Parkway, underneath Town Line Liquors and the Amazing sex-toys shop.

“Is there a Four Seasons Landscaping there?” board member Mark Erlich joked.

Beacon Compassion Inc.’s application now goes to the state Cannabis Control Commission for consideration.

The company has been trying to fit out the building’s basement for a medical dispensary since 2017. Beacon attorney Mike Ross said the basement spot actually proved popular among nearby residents because it makes the cannabis nature of the business less prominent on VFW Parkway.
