On today’s podcast, we visit the new Viola flagship cannabis retail operation near the old Boblo Boat docks.

Viola, owned by NBA veteran Al Harrington, is a national cannabis company that’s going to invest up to $10 million in the space, with a goal of creating more than 60 jobs as he rolls vertical integration into the facility.

We sit down with Harrington on the podcast and get an idea of what’s in store. Have a listen in the player above.

Here are some pictures from the opening:
