About $100,000 worth of marijuana was stolen from Pure Oasis, a recreational cannabis shop in Dorchester, on Sunday night, according to WBZ.
The co-owner of the first recreational marijuana shop to open in Boston told the television station that during the looting within the city that led to more than 50 arrests, about $100,000 worth of cannabis was taken.
Pure Oasis opened on March 9 as Boston’s first through one of the Cannabis Control Commission’s equity programs, designed to help people and communities that were disproportionately harmed by the war on drugs.
The cannabis was taken after a largely peaceful night of protests in response to the death of George Floyd, eroded into 53 arrests.
Requests for comment from Pure Oasis weren’t immediately returned.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh noted the vast majority of the people on Sunday night who came out to protest were “passionate” and “peaceful.” They gathered from across the city to remember Floyd and say that his life and all black lives have profound value “equal to any other life,” he said.
After the peaceful protests ended, police officers were hit with sticks, bottles and fireworks, Walsh said, and stores were “smashed up” and robbed. More than 20 law enforcement cruisers were damaged, and one was lit on fire.
