Two Cultivation Facilities For Jackson County

JOHNSTOWN, NY - AUGUST 19: Cannabis plants grow in the 'vegetation room' at Vireo Health's medical marijuana cultivation facility, August 19, 2016 in Johnstown, New York. New York state lawmakers voted to legalize marijuana for medical use in 2014 and the law took effect in January 2016. Currently, five organizations are allowed to grow and sell the drug for medical use in the state. New York's new law only allows people with 'severe debilitating or life threatening conditions' to obtain marijuana for medical use. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

There will now be two medical marijuana cultivation facilities in Jackson County.

On Friday, Natural State Wellness Enterprises, which was originally expected to be located in Jefferson County, formally selected Jackson County as its county of operation.

The other facility will be run by Delta Medical Cannabis Company LLC.  It will be located in Newport.
