New York City’s first legal weed shop opened today

Sales at the New York’s first legal #marijuana shop were on a roll Thursday after Housing Works in Noho opened its doors at a quintessential pothead hour — 4:20 p.m.

Hundreds of stoners snapped up everything from pre-rolled joints to potent edibles at the shop’s grand opening at 750 Broadway, straddling Greenwich Village and NoHo, where some folks sparked celebratory blunts in line outside.

“I’m here to be part of history,” said Ken Woodin, 33, a stay-at-home dad from Brooklyn, who was puffing pot dubbed Green Crack from a pipe despite signs warning customers not to smoke on site.

While it’s less expensive to buy weed from his dealer — $20 on the street compared with $55 for an eighth of an ounce at the new outlet — he said state-regulated marijuana is healthier and higher-end.

“It’s a better high and it’s cleaner, with less pesticides,” said Woodin. “It’s the difference between having something coated in chemicals go in your lungs versus something that doesn’t.”

As a line of 200 people snaked around the block, a protester shouted, “Richest country in the world and all you people can do is smoke marijuana?!” — to which one buyer fired back: “She needs an edible!”

Inside the minimalist-style shop, workers showcased gummies ($30), fruit-flavored vapes ($95) and good old-fashioned buds in cookie jar-like containers ($55 for 3.5 grams).

Other ganja goodies up for grabs included 1 gram joints for $18 or a five-pack for $44.

David Sipness, 75, of Brooklyn Heights bought raspberry-flavored Florist Farms Golden Raspberry gummies at the powerful dose of 100 mg to help him sleep, he said. He also took home some loose-leaf buds for $105 plus tax.

The opening comes nearly two years after the law legalizing cannabis in the state was approved by the legislature and former Gov. Andrew Cuomo in March 2021.
