An Albany business owner plans to open a marijuana processing business next month to convert medical marijuana into smokeless substances.

Owner Rhea Graham, 50, who has a medical marijuana card, said she expects to be flooded with customers when she begins operating Albany’s Canna Kitchen & Research on Friday, Nov. 11, Veterans Day.

At her business, Graham will wash the marijuana and then process it primarily into butter, oils, tinctures, salves and capsules.

Albany police Capt. Eric Carter said this about the new business in an email: “This particular situation is a new twist on things; however, as far as marijuana dispensaries are concerned, we are in discussion with the district attorney’s office and conducting the research necessary to come to a conclusion as to the legality of what is being proposed.”
