There is a convenience/hookah/weed-pipe store on Prospect Street next to the famed Lost Sock.
See the dairy case in the background? That’s how the whole store is laid out. Party in the front, pantry in the back.
Some nicely arranged Hookah tobacco.
But see, it’s CLOSED.
I’ve been walking past the store pretty regularly in recent weeks because it’s on the way to my girlfriend’s house from Central Square. I’ve been privileged to see its development. A couple of weeks ago, it looked very poised to be opened, but as we’ve established it hasn’t happened. My gut (and I know nothing about this stuff) tells me the city of Cambridge wants to keep weed-pipe sales at discreet, humble locations- like that little corner store in Teele Square that humbly sells little pipes out of a cabinet-sized case. Again, my guess is the city of Cambridge is fighting this as they think it’s a bit much. Perhaps they feel it’s an exploitive response to the decriminalization of marijuana. I really want your thoughts and insights on this so leave them on facebook if at all possible.
