Here are some stories making headlines across the Hudson Valley.
Two smoke shops in Orange County have been raided by state officials for allegedly selling cannabis illegally. The shops, "Puff Puff Pass" and "Soljie's,” both located on Broadway in Newburgh, were targeted in the operation. Signs posted on the windows by the State Office of Cannabis Management indicated that illicit cannabis was seized from the businesses. Officials emphasize that the unlicensed sale of cannabis deprives the government of significant tax revenue.

Jonathan Brown has been charged with attempted assault and endangering the welfare of a child in connection with the incident.
