Penn Yan village board opts in for marijuana sales, on-site consumption

In a split decision, the Penn Yan Village Board has voted to allow both retail sales and on-premise consumption of marijuana when it becomes legal in New York next year.


The Chronicle-Express reports the vote to opt-out was four “no” to two “yes.” Board members Spenser and Koek voted yes, while Condella, McCloud, Stewart, and Hoban voted no. About 150 people attended the public hearing held before the vote. Earlier this year, an opt-out resolution died for lack of a second.

Communities have until the end of the year to decide whether to opt-out. Many communities that have opted in said if they didn’t, they would lose tax revenue to towns and villages that did.
