Medical marijuana will soon be coming to the Empire State, and we’re hopeful that we’ll be one of the companies to gain a license to help heal New York’s patients in need.
With applications now in the state’s hands, Forbes recently covered the 300+ applications that the state has received and interviewed our CEO David Weisser for the piece. While we may have not yet received one of the licenses (they won’t be announced till mid-July), we’ve laid the proper framework should we gain one:
Some companies aren’t waiting for their approvals. Empire State Compassionate Care, which is owned and run by the principals of New Jersey’s Garden State Dispensary announced today the locations of their New York dispensaries. David Weisser said, “We’re excited to put in an application with locked-in dispensary and manufacturing locations.” The locations include 40 West 27th Street in Manhattan, 760 Fulton Ave in Hempstead in Nassau County, 3057 Erie Boulevard East in Syracuse and 1933 Kensington Ave. in Cheektowga, a suburb of Buffalo.

Hopefully when July rolls around, we’ll have some great news to share with you and we’ll then be able to start serving patients in a third state. We couldn’t be happier to be playing a role in this nation’s making of marijuana history and are fully prepared to do so in the greatest city in the world and New York’s surrounding area!
By this time next year, the Rocky Mountain High experience just might stretch from Syracuse to the city…
