Settlement opens door for additional cannabis dispensaries in New York

Two new cannabis dispensaries have recently opened in the Capital Region, following the approval of settlements in lawsuits challenging New York’s Conditional Adult Use Retail Dispensary program. After being held up by the lawsuit, Pasha Adams, the owner of Capital District Cannabis and Wellness Incorporated, expressed his elation at finally being able to open for business. Adams explained that he was inspired to open a cannabis business after researching the benefits of the plant, and the frustrating experience of being forced to wait taught him to trust the process.

Tremaine Wright, the chairperson of the New York State Cannabis Control Board, emphasized the importance of moving the cannabis industry forward and expressed gratitude that the unnecessary delay caused by the lawsuit has now come to an end. With a wider pool of applicants and the settlement of the lawsuit, she stated that there are ample opportunities for New Yorkers in the industry.

Adams hopes that his new store will bring business activity to the city of Albany and provide beneficial products to customers. Similarly, The 420 Bliss shop in Troy, owned by entrepreneurs Al Attoh, Gregg Little, and Renee Lindo, is set to contribute to the expansion of the cannabis industry in the region.

Officials from the Office of Cannabis Management anticipate a significant increase in the number of new shops opening over the next year. Adams expressed his hope that the store will educate people about the benefits of the plant and provide them with helpful products. Meanwhile, Adams sees the opening of his store as a positive step for the city as well as for his business, and the settlement of the lawsuit has paved the way for both dispensaries to begin operations and provide their services to the community.
