That’s the deal at a trio of recreational marijuana shops open on Seneca Nation land

KILL BUCK, N.Y. — With New York State government just beginning to build the product and regulatory pipeline that will eventually bring recreational marijuana to consumers, dispensaries have already sprouted on Seneca Nation territory.

Responding to a tip, 2 On Your Side Thursday visited the Kill Buck area, about a 15-minute drive south of Ellicottville. Along a 2.5 mile stretch of Rt. 417, there are three dispensaries.

The owner of one of pot shops was happy to talk with us, as long as he was not identified, “Everything is like here is grown on territory. I mean there’s no imports.”

The shop, Outer Limits, has just been open for two weeks. And despite the local competition, we did see customers at his dispensary while we visited.

All three marijuana businesses technically were not selling cannabis. Rather, they were selling novelty items that come with a cannabis gift. At Outer Limits stickers run from $35 – $285.  As a customer pays more, quality and quantity of the marijuana gifts increase.

This sales maneuver is to

Southbury puts a pause on legal pot dispensaries – Danbury News Times

SOUTHBURY — Southbury has followed the lead of other Connecticut municipalities by placing a temporary ban on cannabis establishments.

After hearing from Southbury residents, the Zoning Commission voted unanimously to approve the moratorium last month. The moratorium allows the town to defer to June any decisions on regulations and pot shops.

According to the minutes of the special meeting, Zoning Commission Chairman Gary Giroux said a nine-month moratorium is in place, allowing the commission time to write regulations and determine where retailers could set up in town.

“This moratorium allows us to take our time do the research and produce proper regulations that make sense for our town,” Southbury First Selectman Jeffrey Manville said. “We are looking closely at the new cannabis laws.”

Southbury Economic Development Director Kevin Bielmeier favors the moratorium.

“Regarding the new state law around recreational cannabis, I think the decision by the Zoning Commission for a moratorium was appropriate,” Bielmeier said. “It was longer than what I would have proposed, which is 6 months. But it provides the town time

Opening in one of California’s premier cannabis retail locations, B-Real said he is proud to deliver top-shelf weed products that have become synonymous with Dr. Greenthumb’s to the La Mesa community and surrounding area. 

Chatting with Benzinga, the artist and entrepreneur said, “This San Diego store is a special one, I’m really excited about the celebration. We’ve been talking and working forever, and sometimes things take longer than you imagined, but when they come together it’s just that much more special for the community. For me personally, this is big. I feel like everything we’d been building at DGT got put on pause with the lockdowns. What this store opening means is that we are

Business remains consistent at local dispensaries – Yahoo News

Sep. 30—After a few years since medical marijuana was legalized in Oklahoma, business at local dispensaries has been consistent for both new and established locations.

At Primetime Buds, traffic has slowed down slightly, but there’s been no dramatic change to the operation. Manager Blaine Mooney said many of the patients who visit Primetime also grow their own marijuana at home.

“It’s harvest season right now,” he said. “Everybody is getting their bud off their plants, so there’s no need for them to come buy from us if they have their own.”

Still, there’s been plenty of new faces to show up at the dispensary as of late. Mooney contributed some of the influx of new patients to Northeastern State University’s fall semester being in session. He said it also helps that they offer a discount for the NSU community.

“We just did an event last weekend and we got 40 new recommendations from the doctor,” he said.

One change the dispensary has had to make is how they deal with patients, though. The staff was told recently by an inspector that bud tenders aren’t allowed to offer much medical advice, so the dispensary workers have to word how a particular product might affect someone differently.

Cookies Dispensary Official Denies Marketing Targets Minors – Candid Chronicle

The Cookies cannabis retail chain claims its marketing activities and business name have been misinterpreted and misconstrued by local regulators, who have been critical of the firm for allegedly targeting minors.

The business, which currently operates shops in La Mesa and Mission Valley, received clearance in June to expand to Sorrento Valley.

Marketing Claims

Previously, the San Diego Planning Commission and the Torrey Pines Community Planning Group stated that Cookies name and Sesame Street-style visuals suggesting the Cookie Monster figure attract juvenile customers.

In an interview, a Cookies official stated that the chain does not target underage young people, adding that the Cookies moniker doesn’t refer to actual cookies, but to matching clients with the best cannabis strain for them.

In an interview last week, a company representative stated that the chain does not target young teenagers, clarifying that the Cookies title refers not to actual cookies but connecting clients with the best cannabis variety for them.

Cookies officials say that, much like cookies, cannabis comes in a wide variety of strains, and consumers must identify the type that has the desired effect on their body.

“There is a long legacy with the name Cookies,” says Cookies VP Crystal
