Well there won’t be a legal dispensary for medical marijuana in Brooklyn but there will almost definitely be dispensaries in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. Yes, it’s official the New York State Legislature has now given out 5 licenses for firms to grow and dispense medical marijuana in the State of New York.
Each licensed firm plans to open 4 dispensaries each, so that means 20 dispensaries in total in the whole state, and the three dispensaries planned for NYC are the ones listed above.
Apart from providing a product which is great for people who need it for medical reasons, New York State is looking to promote the employment opportunities associated with this new crop and of course reap the tax benefits as well. But bottom line there are a lot of New Yorkers who will be so glad they can buy their medicinal weed without all the barriers they’ve coped with for years.
