“We will be adding more than twenty new jobs to the local economy and we look forward to building an impactful, positive relationship with the community. We feel very honored to be bringing our business to Ware, located in the Hampshire County and the greater Springfield area,” said Curaleaf Massachusetts President Patrik Jonsson.
