Event at Rochester library on Friday aims to educate people about opening dispensaries

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The New York State Dispensary Showroom on Friday is aiming to educate local people on what it takes to open a cannabis dispensary.

The showroom is from 12:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Business Insight Center. That’s on the fourth floor of the Central Library of Rochester on South Avenue. The event comes a day after the state approved the first licenses for cannabis dispensaries in the Finger Lakes region.

The event will educate people on what an adult-use dispensary needs to become fully compliant and how dispensaries can create equitable jobs. Mayor Malik Evans and other local leaders will be there.
