Roger Hannigan Gilson reports in the Times Union that the first local cannabis stores have finally opened after the state legalized the drug more than two and a half years ago. But the two stores in Hudson are only temporary pop-up shops operating only until the end of the year. Gotham Dispensary’s pop-up store is on Front Street, and Legacy Dispensers are selling cannabis on Union St. In October, New York officials opened up licensing for temporary pop-up shops to sell some of the cannabis that has been piling up with few stores officially open. So far, the only other official cannabis stores open nearby are in Albany and Rensselaer County. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
