The South Bronx had a grand opening Thursday for its first legal cannabis dispensary.
The Bronx Joint, a family owned business by the Ortecho family, now occupies a space at 952 Hunts Point Ave.
Alexander Ortecho said he has hit the ground running to get the shop to finally open their doors since they were set to open up months ago.
"You have got to be patient, right? With the laws being made as we were getting our license, but it's a nice opportunity for us to connect with the community out here," he said.
Aside from the products, murals, and grafitti adorn the entire shop to embrace the Bronx culture.
While Bronx Joint is the South Bronx's first legal dispensary, it's just the third in the entire borough.
Bronx Joint is open from Monday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
