‘Chapter 56: Local Cannabis Retail Dispensary and/or On-Site Consumption Opt-Out

Section 56-1.  It is the intent of this local law that the Village of South Floral Park opt out of hosting retail cannabis dispensaries and/or on-site cannabis consumption establishments within its boundaries.  This local law is adopted pursuant to New York State Cannabis Law § 131, which expressly authorizes a village to opt out of allowing retail cannabis dispensaries and/or on-site cannabis consumption establishments to locate and operate within its boundaries.
