State May Allow Marijuana Growers to Sell at Farmers Markets and Festivals

The state's slow rollout of licensed marijuana stores is squeezing the farmers who were given state licenses to supply them.

The Hochul administration is considering allowing the farmers to sell their crops at farmers markets, festivals and concerts this summer.

Geneseo grower Justin Merkel tells News10NBC his 1,000 pound crop from last year is sitting in storage.

The state Office of Cannabis Management is still working on the regulations for sales of weed at farmers markets.

But the plan may conflict with local governments that opted out of licensed marijuana sales.
