Medical marijuana dispensary to open in Yonkers

Etain LLC is poised to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Yonkers, and Mayor Mike Spano said the city differed from other communities that tried to block access to the controversial business.

“Many communities in New York state, and I think we all know this, have worked to keep dispensaries out and we did not; we worked to bring this dispensary here,” Spano said.

He spoke Wednesday during a media tour hosted by Etain, which plans to start selling marijuana-based drugs Friday in the city’s downtown business district at 55 Main St., a couple of blocks from the Hudson River. It would become the second dispensary to open in Westchester County since New York became the 23rd state to allow medical marijuana.

The other dispensary is in downtown White Plains and operated by Vireo Health of New York. There are 20 total dispensary sites across New York where patients will be allowed to buy the drug under the state marijuana program, which launched in January.
