Dalam melegalkan ganja pada Maret 2021, anggota parlemen New York mensyaratkan bahwa itu hanya dapat dijual oleh pengecer berlisensi kepada orang dewasa di atas 21 tahun. Pengecer juga hanya dapat menjual ganja yang ditanam dan diproses oleh produsen berlisensi di New York.

Housing Works termasuk di antara 36 kelompok atau individu pertama yang diberikan negara bagian dengan lisensi ritel ganja bulan lalu.

Di Housing Works, warga dapat mengisap ganja yang dijual seharga US$20 hingga US$30 per 3,5 gram atau sekitar Rp309 ribu hingga Rp464 ribu. Ganja yang dijual berasal dari Florist Farms di Cortland di bagian utara New York.

Pasar abu-abu telah berkembang untuk sementara, dengan pengecer tanpa izin secara ilegal menjual ganja dari toko dan van bermerek di seluruh New York City. Walikota Eric Adams, seorang Demokrat, mengatakan pengecer tanpa izin tidak akan ditoleransi.
