Selling cannabis accessories, like vaporizers, can be tricky due to laws regarding drug paraphernalia. Brooklyn-based Puffco can now do business in the light of day without having to resort to substituting the word “tobacco” for “cannabis” in its home state of New York now that medical cannabis is legal.
“Before today, if you were to buy our product with the intention to consume cannabis, you would be buying paraphernalia, and you can’t do that legally,” said Roger Volodarsky, a Coney Island native and chief executive officer at Puffco. “Finally, that is an option now. You can walk into a dispensary and speak openly about what you plan to use it for.”
