Westchester Marijuana Dispensary to Open This Week

Officials for the newest medical marijuana dispensary in White Plains opened the facility to media this week, to show what will be provided to the community when it opens on Thursday. Vireo Health will be opening on East Post Road where residents who qualify for prescriptions for marijuana, which is newly legal in New York State, will be allowed to purchase the drug in three forms, pills, oil, and vapor. In order to enter the facility a patient must obtain a prescription and be listed on database provided by the state. Vireo grows the plant upstate and this dispensary will be one of two in Westchester County, and one of twenty in all of New York. The state is the 23rd to legalize medical use of the drug, which is still illegal federally, and so it will not be covered by patients’ insurance.
