New York announced the five companies it will allow to produce and dispense medical marijuana in the state.
Broome County will be home to one dispensary run by Empire State Health Solutions, which will manufacture the drug in Fulton County. Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo released a statement referencing Salus Scientific, a company that looked to produce medical marijuana in Broome County.
She said while that company didn't get a license, she feels it will continue to look to make the area a hub for hemp manufacturing. She feels the company will still try to build a relationship with the planned BU Pharmacy School.
