First legal cannabis shop in Rochester will open Wednesday on East Avenue
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The first legal cannabis shop in Rochester is expected to open its doors on Wednesday.
Herbal IQ will open on East Avenue across from Wegmans. It will open more than two years after New York State legalized the retail sale of cannabis. The shop will carry products from growers and processors in Central New York and the Finger Lakes Region.
Herbal IQ is running as a temporary pop-up location which is still allowed. The shop’s hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays through Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
