Cash Only watched history go down on December 29th as we attended the opening of New York’s first licensed recreational cannabis dispensary, Housing Works. This was a marijuana milestone, to be sure.
Thousands of people lined the streets to get entry to the brick-and-mortar store, which received one of the first retail licenses due to being a nonprofit.
The event turned into a block party, with people smoking and selling weed outside before even gaining entrance. While waiting to get in, we met entrepreneurs, content creators, and even a 420-focused inventor.
This was an unforgettable moment marking the dawn of a new era of weed in New York. Watch what went down and stay tuned for a follow-up doc chronicling the inside of the shop.
