Two Oceanside smoke shops were selling cannabis products, said Nassau police, who announced the arrests of two men and the seizure of a “large quantity” of products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cash.

Nofil Navid, 20, of Elmhurst, was arrested Thursday at Zee’s Smoke Shop, 2895 Long Beach Road, where cannabis gummies and vape cartridges containing THC were being sold, police said.

Less than 500 feet away, at Oceanside Star Bazzar Smoke Shop & Vape, 2947 Long Beach Road, THC-laced chocolate bars were being sold, police said. Carlos Mejia, 18, of Inwood, was arrested.

Both men are charged with felonies: criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance. 

Mejia was released on recognizance after his arraignment Friday in Nassau First District Court.

Navid also was to be arraigned Friday. Further details on his arraignment were not available in online court records. 

It was not immediately clear if they were represented by counsel.

Recreational marijuana can now be sold legally in New York, but only from a small number of stores, including at least one in New York City.
