I feel like there's a joke here somewhere ...

If all goes according to plan as soon as a month into 2019 FP Wellness, for Fiorello Pharmaceuticals, is scheduled to open in the former Among Angles (who offered tarot & angel card readings for spiritual guidance & encouragement) location at 1675 Route 9 in Halfmoon.

All joking aside, the Capital Region is about to get it's first medical marijuana dispensary north of the twin bridges. According to the Daily Gazette the new dispensary will work on an appointment-only policy and will operate from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. Best of all it will give patients access to their medicine in a safe and highly clinical environment that is more convenient than having to drive to Albany.

Medical marijuana may not be your prescription but could you imagine if you had to drive 45-60 miles to get access to medication that could help you at the very least have a better quality of life?
