Kobie Evans of Pure Oasis is a Massachusetts marijuana legend. Kobie was one of the first SE or EE applicants to get a retail dispensary license set up from start to finish. It was a long and grueling process that took up over 4 years of Kobe’s life. He was rewarded for all that hard work with the chance to open the first recreational dispensary in Boston proper. Kobie set up Pure Oasis as the first recreational cannabis location in Boston, hence having the first-mover advantage in a city or roughly 700,000 people. Yes, there were medical dispensaries set up like NETA in Brookline, MA and Patriot Care on Milk St in Boston, but no on had a recreational shop approved and open yet.
