Dazed Cannabis, a Black and Veteran owned cannabis brand, has officially opened the first and only dispensary in Monson, Massachusetts. Founded by Keshawn Warner, Rich Rainone and Chris Vianello, Dazed Monson joins the brand's Holyoke, Massachusetts and Union Square, New York City locations.
The opening of Dazed Monson marks the beginning of a brand expansion with plans for several more dispensaries opening within the next year throughout the Eastern Seaboard.
Dazed Monson is replacing the Magic Lantern strip club, a local establishment that shuttered in 2022. The pink Dazed sign has officially replaced the vintage "topless" sign that has illuminated Route 20 since 1969.
"Our mission is to offer a curated selection of the finest cannabis the state has to offer in an uplifting and educational environment that is centered on community," said Keshawn Warner, Co Founder of Dazed Cannabis. "As a brand firmly rooted in nostalgia and experience it's only right that we're ushering in a new era for the Magic Lantern, where many good times were had. We're thrilled to be passing on the torch and serving the community in a new way."
