A pharmacy that deals with the sale of medicinal marijuana may soon be located in the Village of Gouverneur. North Country Roots Inc., based out of Plattsburgh, has applied for a state license to open up a dispensary within the village. Last year, the state passed a law allowing for the sale and distribution of marijuana for medical purposes. There are restrictions however. The marijuana can only be sold in pill or oil form. Village officials would also have to approve the opening as the pharmacy would be subject to normal zoning laws and other considerations required by new businesses to open.
