Will there be retail marijuana shops near me in the Finger Lakes or Central New York? Here’s every town and village that opted out

Say no to drugs. That was apparently the message dozens of municipalities in the Finger Lakes and Central New York sent in late-2021 when given the chance to opt-out of the state’s recreational marijuana law.

The state has released full-data on the towns and villages across New York who opted out.

Dozens in the Finger Lakes decided against allowing dispensaries or similar type operations in their community. While no community will be able to opt-out of the legal consumption of marijuana- they were able to effectively prevent marijuana-driven businesses from opening up.

Here’s a look at the communities who opted-out in the region:
