Local businesses offer cannabis products ahead of state licensing rollout

The New York State Office of Cannabis Management approved the first round of licenses for hemp growers last week, though retail licenses are yet-to-be announced. Some local businesses have already begun selling cannabis products despite not being licensed.

One such business is Stalk & Stem in Canandaigua, which is owned and operated by Rochester native Rachel Morgan, according to Finger Lakes Times. To buy the cannabis-infused baked goods, customers must be over 22 years of age and pay $10 to join Morgan’s Greenhouse Club. Morgan plans to put the money she makes selling cannabis products towards her greenhouse retirement project.

Wayne County officials declined to comment for the Finger Lakes Times story. Ontario County District Attorney Jim Ritts said he doesn’t anticipate the unlicensed retail of cannabis to be a priority for local law enforcement. As for the Cayuga Nation-owned retail shops, they are exempt from the state rule, and the two Seneca Falls stores appear to be the only ones selling cannabis in Seneca County.
