As a member of the media, I get to go into cool places every once in awhile that normally, I would have no chance of getting into.

Recently, I was able to take a behind-the-scenes tour of The Pass, one of the newest Recreational Marijuana dispensaries to open up in our nearby, progressive neighbor, Massachusetts.

The Pass is located right on Rt. 7, at 1375 N. Main St., in Sheffield, Massachusetts.  It's about 5 miles North of the CT/Mass border, making The Pass the closest legal Cannabis dispensary to Western Connecticut, and the New York City metropolitan area. In my wildest dreams, I never thought that I would be able to legally step foot inside a marijuana growing operation. But, I did, and I was able to take photographs. Have a look inside at an incredible "Farm to Label" operation:
