NORTH ADAMS — Temescal Wellness of Massachusetts plans to open an indoor cultivation site for medical and recreational marijuana on Curran Highway.

The company is holding a community outreach meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday on Zoom for residents to learn more about the project and ask questions. A day before the meeting, a presentation with more information will be posted on the company's website at tinyurl.com/2p8djh4u.
