2 LI spots to legally dispense medical marijuana

State health officials have designated two spots on Long Island that will be able to legally dispense medical marijuana.



Bloomfield Industries will open a dispensary in Nassau County, and Columbia Care NY will have a dispensary in Suffolk County. 



Columbia Care tells News 12 Long Island that dispensary will be located in Riverhead.



Questions yet to be answered by the state include the exact locations of the dispensaries.



As News 12 Long Island has reported, 43 applications were submitted but only five were approved.



The state's medical marijuana program starts in January.
