The fourth medical marijuana dispensary on Long Island debuted Friday with a new facility called The Botanist in East Farmingdale.

Acreage Holdings, Inc., a Manhattan-based cannabis operator with a presence in 19 states, opened the new location at 2365 Broadhollow Road, making it the company’s fourth such dispensary in New York State.

“The Botanist will sell a selection of the best cannabis products available across every category that New York State regulations allow, including vape cartridges, tinctures, capsules and more,” the company said in a news release.

LI’s three other medical marijuana dispensaries are in Riverhead, Lake Success, and, most recently, Carle Place. Two more are expected to open on the Island — one in Nassau County, the other in Suffolk.

A doctor must certify that a patient is eligible to use medical marijuana in New York State. Conditions that qualify under state law include Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer, AIDS, and others.
