The Seneca Nation of Indians has announced the opening date for its marijuana shop in Niagara Falls, NY, following the legalization of recreational cannabis in the state earlier this year.
The shop, which will be called "Niagara Ventures," is set to open its doors on May 1st, making it the first cannabis dispensary to open on Native American land in the state. The Seneca Nation has long been a supporter of legalizing cannabis and has been working on plans to open its own dispensary since the state's legalization.
The shop will be located in the former Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, which has undergone extensive renovations to accommodate the new business. Niagara Ventures will offer a wide variety of cannabis products, including flower, edibles, concentrates, and topicals, all grown and produced by the Seneca Nation.
In addition to offering a new source of revenue for the Seneca Nation, Niagara Ventures will also create jobs for members of the tribe and the surrounding community. The shop is expected to employ around 50 people, including budtenders, security staff, and administrative personnel.
The Seneca Nation is not the only tribe looking to capitalize on the legalization of cannabis in New York. Several other tribes have expressed interest in opening their own dispensaries, which could create a significant economic boost for Native American communities across the state.
As the cannabis industry continues to grow and evolve in New York, it will be interesting to see how these new businesses impact the state's economy and social landscape. With Niagara Ventures set to open in just a few weeks, it's clear that the Seneca Nation is poised to play a significant role in this exciting new industry.
