Audio Article

Since the March 28 announcement legalizing cannabis in New York, Cities, towns, and villages across the state are deciding whether to exercise their right to opt-out of allowing adult-use cannabis retail dispensaries or on-site consumption licenses by passing a local law by Dec. 31, or nine months after the effective date of the legislation.

The Town Supervisor has strong opinions on how Marilla should handle it.
