Headspace Glass Gallery in Buffalo, New York was broken into and looted following a protest Saturday night. Protestors took to the streets of Buffalo this weekend in response to continued incidences of police brutality occurring nationwide, most recently resulting in the death of George Floyd by police.
Headspace was one of the early brands working to normalize and celebrate cannabis culture in Western New York. The shop’s dedication to providing knowledgeable assistance to customers and supporting local glass artisans made it a local icon. The shop that was broken into was the location on Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo, N.Y., Headspace’s original location.
Headspace is only one of many local businesses to be effected by this violence in the Buffalo region. Several Buffalo businesses have been the target of robbery during this turbulent time including optical stores and 7-Eleven convenience stores. Incidents like this are happening nationwide.
It is unfortunate that the violence spilling over from protests is causing further destruction in our communities.
