ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)— The New York State Fair opens Friday, and among the changes this year is something way different, legal marijuana.

A fair spokesperson told CNY Central anywhere tobacco use is allowed, adults can smoke weed. Smoking is still banned in fairground buildings or in the open concert venues –but is allowed elsewhere outdoors.

If you are going to spark it up, organizers say they encourage those who smoke to be considerate of others around them

The fair runs from Friday through Sept. 6.
