PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Temescal Wellness will start recreational sales of marijuana on Tuesday starting at 11 a.m.
The company will be the first to sell recreational marijuana in the city and will be the second in the county. Temescal was granted its license to sell for adult use in December and is now expecting a big crowd on the first day.
The company has been serving medical marijuana patients since October in a newly constructed 3,000 square-foot facility on Callahan Drive.
For the rollout of recreational sales, the company secured more than 100 spots for the opening day and is planning to have outdoor tents and bathrooms available for customers who may be waiting in line. Parking is available at 1485 West Housatonic Street starting at 10 a.m. 
The company will have a staff of 14 available on the first day to assist customers. For the first week, however, the company will only be accepting cash payments. The store will be open until 7 p.m.
Temescal is limiting purchases to 1/8 ounce of flower, two .5 gram pre-rolled joints, and one vape pen or cartridge. 
The sales follow just a couple days after the county's first retailer began selling recreational. Theory Wellness in Great Barrington opened its doors on Friday.

Facilitated by the Y's Pittsfield branch at 292 North St., with practice and game locations at gyms throughout Pittsfield, the league’s dates are from Nov. 9 through mid-March.
The Y's CYC Basketball House League provides a high-quality experience to every athlete, especially those who need it most. Every athlete is coached using the principles of positive coaching; has fun at practices and games; feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance; has respect for self, team-mates, coaches and officials; learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the court; and learns the skills, tactics and strategies of the game and improves as a player.
The Y is seeking volunteer coaches for the CYC Basketball House and Travel Leagues. The Y recognizes that coaches are the people who most directly make this all possible. The Y is committed to creating a positive culture, in which coaches, parents, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission. In your role as a volunteer coach, you will work with our youth program members on skill development, safety, fair play, sportsmanship, and fun! The right candidate possesses organizational skills, patience, maturity, and dependability, along with sound character, strong morals, values, and personal ethics. CORI checks are required.
