Marijuana sales opt-out on agenda in Oneida


ONEIDA — The Oneida Common Council will introduce a local law to opt-out of allowing retail cannabis dispensaries in the city of Oneida at its next meeting, with a public hearing scheduled for November to hear from residents.

The local law would be voted on by the city council after the public hearing and decided whether or not the city opts-out. If the city opts-out from allowing retail cannabis dispensaries within the city, the city council can opt-back in at a later date.

If the council does not opt-out by the end of the year, the option will no longer be available.

The city cannot opt out of the legalization of marijuana, which was approved by the state, only whether it will allow or prohibit its sale from authorized dispensaries.

The public hearing will be scheduled for Monday, Nov. 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Common Council Chambers at City Hall, 109 N. Main St. in Oneida.
