Bushwick is home to what may be the world's only real estate brokerage where you can simultaneously rent an apartment and...buy smokable hemp? This week, we look at the story behind The Locals Laboratory, a surprising organization trying to effect positive change in the neighborhood at the intersection of real estate and therapeutic plants.


Our sincere thanks to Angea, Merly, and the Locals team. You can find out more about The Locals at their website, www.thelocalsbrooklyn.com, and on their instagram, @thelocalsbrooklyn.
