  • A line forms outside New England Treatment Access in Northampton Massachusetts on Tuesday

A marijuana milestone in MA - the first recreational marijuana stores in the Eastern United States will open Tuesday in Leicester and Northampton.

The state's first commercial pot shops opened in Leicester and Northampton.

Northampton Mayor David Narkewicz makes the first marijuana purchase at New England Treatment Access, Nov. 20, 2018.

It comes more than two years after legal recreational marijuana use was approved by voters.

Cannabis is sold legally in six Western states.

Sam Barber, president and owner of Cultivate, was also excited for the shop's long-awaited opening: "It's pretty surreal".

Cultivate and NETA will continue to serve medical marijuana patients.

Items for sale in the modern and spacious stores include various strains of the part of the plant that can be smoked, pre-rolled joints and edibles such as brownies and chocolate bars.

The rollout of legal pot sales has been slow in MA, with regulators saying they wanted to make sure it was done safely and without some of the supply issues other states have faced.

MA residents voted to legalize the use, distribution and cultivation of recreational marijuana in a 2016 referendum.

Material from State House News Service and the Associated Press was also used for this report.
