WOONSOCKET â€” When his friend first proposed they go into business together providing gardening supplies for medical marijuana growers, Jeff Paige had cold feet.
The 51-year-old refugee from the telecommunications industry wasnâ€™t against legal pot, medical or otherwise. But heâ€™s no crusader, either, and heâ€™s pretty careful about how he invests his money.
He took a hard and long look at whether the idea made business sense.
â€śI think what I was really doing was looking for a reason not to do it,â€ť says Paige. â€śNow Iâ€™m kicking myself that I didnâ€™t do this two years ago.â€ť

With the clock reading 4:17 p.m., the Lincoln seniors picked up a pen and with family, coaches and school administrators present, carefully signed the document before them.
