I visited a newly licensed marijuana farm in New York and was shocked that there is still a long way to go before legal sales begin.


  • Legal sales of recreational marijuana will begin in New York City by the end of 2022.
  • The first legal growers got their permits in April, allowing them to sell their crops.
  • I visited one of the first licensed farms in upstate New York and saw that there was still a long way to go.

around the end of this year No one seems to know exactly when. New York City is expected to legally allow the sale of recreational marijuana, making it one of the world’s most lucrative legal cannabis markets.

And right now, in preparation for a food craze, dozens of farmers are growing marijuana, New York’s first legal crop.

Last Friday, I visited one of those farms, two hours north of New York City, in the rural idyllic Hudson of New York City.
