HUNTS POINT - Some business owners in Hunts Point are concerned that a medical marijuana dispensary may be moving into the area.

The possible site of the dispensary is right in the middle of factories and warehouses. That's why Gary Jacobs, who runs F&F Supply, is worried. He feels that having a dispensary in an isolated area will only bring crime and bad crowds.

"Who knows what's going to appear here, but it's not going to be good for the neighborhood, for my business," says Jacobs.

Others in the area disagree, saying that anything is better than the strip club that used to be in the area.
