Now that marijuana is legal and more edibles are becoming available, it is important that you make sure your furry friend doesn't accidentally ingest it. But if they do, here are important things to know and signs to look for.
Cannabis dispensaries are slowly opening all over New York State. After the first one, Upstate Canna Co, opened earlier this month on Upper Union Street in Schenectady, the second dispensary will be opening in the Captial Region soon.
Next month the Great New York State Fair in Syracuse will be underway. There are some amazing concerts, games, exhibits, and fair food plus if you are a recreational marijuana user, there's a place for you too.
You may think that because marijuana is legal in New York state there are plenty of places you can light one up. That is not necessarily the case. Where you can and cannot smoke are pretty lopsided so don't expect to see a lot of people smoking marijuana around you.
When you go through the Albany International Airport checkpoint you won't have to worry about having a small amount of marijuana on you. If you have a small amount of pot, TSA agents and police will no longer seize it, arrest you, or even issue a ticket not just at Albany International Airport but airports across New York state. Officials say it's not something security officers are looking for when they pat you down or search your bags.
