Shinnecock To Open Medical Marijuana Dispensary
The Shinnecock Indian Nation has signed a partnership agreement to build and operate a medical marijuana dispensary on the Southampton reservation.
The dispensary will be built within a year as part of an initiative to broaden the tribe’s economic opportunities.
The 3,600-square-foot facility will be located on Montauk Highway in Southampton. It will offer a range of holistic products and treatments like acupuncture.
The tribe is working with the state Department of Health so that it can operate within the state system of card-carrying patients permitted to buy medical marijuana.
They plan on purchasing cannabis from an existing producer already licensed by the state.
