In or out? List of how local towns voted for legalized marijuana sales

Marijuana

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — On December 31, towns and villages in New York State submitted their decisions on allowing marijuana dispensaries and on-site consumption lounges. Towns and villages have the option to opt-in, or opt-out.

If a town does neither, they’ll automatically be enrolled. If a municipality chooses to opt-out, they can change their mind down the road, at anytime. But once they formally opt-in, it’s permanent.

A municipality can also choose whether or not they want both dispensaries/sales and consumption sites/lounges, or just sales.

The following is a list of towns, villages, and municipalities who have opted in, or opted out, both according to the Rockefeller Institute of Government, which is part of SUNY, and News 8.
