The Mass Alternative Care Inc., a medical marijuana dispensary that became operational last month at 1247 East Main St., will have a grand opening this Friday.

Ronald P. Campurciani, the former West Springfield police chief, who is a security consultant for the company, Monday informed that the grand opening will have a cake cutting ceremony in the parking lot of the medical marijuana dispensary at 11 a.m.

People are invited for the event but interior tours of the facility are unavailable and only employees, authorized visitors and clients with medical marijuana identification cards are permitted inside, he added.

Campurciani further said that Chicopee Mayor Richard J. Kos along with the members of the City Council will be among other distinguished guests who are scheduled to attend the grand opening.

Mass Alternative Care Inc. started its operational after getting a license from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Besides, it has obtained a special permit and a zone change from the Planning Board and City Council.

The company had spent $6 million to renovate the Chicopee Engineering Associates building to the current facility.

Now it is pursuing a license from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission to produce and dispense over 25 different kinds of recreational marijuana products, from edibles to capsules, at the same location.

According to Mass Alternative Care Inc. officials , the company will produce four thousand pounds of marijuana at the site every year.
