Sara Rizzo reports for News10 that the Brownies Recreational Dispensary will open Tuesday, February 6 at noon on Central Avenue in Colonie in Albany County, the latest local cannabis store top open. In Catskill, meanwhile, Cassie Abel reports for HudsonValley360.com that on Route 9W near where there used to be a Pizza Hut, Catskill Roots and The Green Hut are competing for a state license. There is also another state applicant for a Main St. location. Catskill's village planning board has approved the Catskill Roots proposal, but that approval is pending the state license. Almost three years after cannabis was legalized in New York, there are still no local retail stores in Greene or Columbia counties.
