According to the law, marijuana retail stores will not be able to open in the state until 2018. Anyone 21 years and older can legally smoke and possess up to an ounce of marijuana outside their home and 10 ounces inside their home. Residents there can also start growing it in their homes starting on Thursday.

Starting today, you can legally smoke pot just over the New York state line. Massachusetts now allows it and that has police here getting ready.

On this side of the border, police are on alert. Rensselaer County is right on the border. WNYT reports that deputies will increase drug enforcement on the highways if they notice that a lot of people are bringing pot in from Massachusetts.

If you do smoke pot over the border, you're still probably going to be subject to your workplace's drug policies.
