One yes and 0ne no in Skaneateles and Corning.
The Citizen and WENY-TV report both communities agreed to allow retail marijuana sales, but both opted out of the opportunity to allow on site consumption. Under New York’s marijuana legalization law, municipalities have until the end of the month to opt out of sales, on site consumption or both. In Skaneateles, Councilor Kevin McCormack made a motion for a local law to ban retail sales but it did not receive a second. The unanimous vote not to allow on site consumption was met with criticism from members of the public, 20 of whom spoke at the meeting.
In Corning, the vote to allow retail sales was 4-3. Like in Skaneateles, the vote against allowing consumption at retail facilities was unanimous.
