BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo's first medical marijuana dispensary is scheduled to open next week.

"The Botanist" is scheduled to open up next Monday located at 192 Seneca Street near the Pierce Arrow museum in Buffalo.

Acreage Holdings, which is opening the shop, say they picked Buffalo because they think it makes a big difference for patients in the city who can't easily make it out to the other dispensaries in the Northtowns.

"They will meet with a pharmacist, go through an intake process, go through a consultation process, make sure they feel comfortable with the medicine we're providing, and make sure it adheres to the state rules and regulations and their qualifying conditions," said, Sonya Parrish, Director of NYS Plant Operations.

The dispensary will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. And on Friday and Saturday from noon to 8 p.m.
