Boston is a well-oiled money-eating and making machine. Five years into legal weed, it’s a shock to see how Massachusetts has ironed out the kinks for visitors.

Rapid delivery services like Rolling Releaf can meet you in front of your spot. Craft living soil growers like Tower Three release small batches of world-class strains like Donny Burger, and Half-Pint.

You can combine Fenway Park with a massive new cannabis mall across the street—New Dia.

And don’t try to dry out, or hew to a diet. Boston demands tasting pints at The Dubliner, and cream pies from Bova’s at 2 in the morning.

Watch along for 90 seconds of Boston weed weekend tips, culled from our recent reporting trip.
