The town of Springport is holding a public hearing this coming Monday, to hear from residents on its plan to opt-out of the state’s new marijuana law.
It won’t mean that marijuana will remain illegal there- but simply means that from an economic development standpoint- the community would not be home to any marijuana dispensaries.
Springport would join Brutus and Union Springs, becoming the third Cayuga County municipality to opt out of the state’s pot law.
“We didn’t think it was a positive thing to do for our community,” Supervisor Dave Schenck told The Citizen. The town board voted unanimously to opt-out.
