Deadline Friday to apply for medical pot license

Boxes of medical marijuana applications were delivered to the NYS Health Dept Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement on Thursday afternoon.

ALBANY, NY (NEWS 10) – Friday is the deadline to apply for a medical marijuana license in New York State.

The state will only approve five licenses.

If a business is licensed, they will still have to find a location and get local approval before building the facility.

A total of four companies have shown interest in putting dispensaries in our area.

  1.      Etain LLC is eyeing locations in Queensbury and Albany.
  2.      North Country Roots wants to put a dispensary in Clifton Park.
  3.      Empire State Health Solutions is hoping to turn the “Tryon Technology Park” in Fulton County into a grow facility.
  4.      Compassionate Care Relief Centers of New York is considering a Washington county site in Cambridge.

The licenses are expected to be awarded sometime in July. The law states no more than one dispensary per county will be allowed.
