The way Bronx resident Ari Hoffnung sees it, Schenectady County is the perfect place for a medical marijuana operation.

Presidential Candidate Rand Paul To Hold Reception At Marijuana Industry Event

It wasn’t that long ago that expressing support for marijuana reform was considered to be political suicide. That’s not to say that there weren’t political candidates that supported marijuana reform in the past, because there certainly were. However, those candidates were considered to be so far in the minority that they were on the fringe at best. That all changed in 2012. In 2012 two states legalized marijuana, and the game changed forever.

Company looks to open medical marijuana dispensary in Evans Mills

WATERTOWN — A Brooklyn-based company is hoping to set up a medical marijuana dispensary in Evans Mills.

Sheva Health and Wellness is one of 43 companies vying for a license to grow and dispense medical marijuana in New York.

The dispensary would be located at 26121 Route 11, Evans Mills, according to spokesman Glen Casey.

Joseph Levine, founding member of the company, said the Watertown area was a good fit due to its location in the state and for its thousands of nearby veterans linked to Fort Drum.

“As NY expands its list of medical conditions to perhaps include PTSD, SHW will be prepared to service this population,” he said, in a statement.

Marijuana advocates have been putting forward an argument saying that alcohol if consumed excessively poses the similar dangers as Marijuana yet it commercially available, therefore authorities should also legalize Marijuana.
