It’s been 44 years since Shop Therapy opened its doors in Provincetown. It sells everything from drug paraphernalia to incense and MAKE LOVE NOT WAR t-shirts. But the store isn’t just any novelty head shop; it’s more like a portrait of founder Ronny Hazel’s life. 

This piece came to us from our production partners at Atlantic Public Media through their media training program, The Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole. Jessica Yung is a graduate of the workshop and you can find out more about that program at Transom.org
