ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – While some municipalities have decided to opt-out of adult-use marijuana dispensaries and/or on-site consumption lounges in their jurisdiction. Failure to comply before the cutoff date will automatically enter a municipality into the retail market.

The Marijuana Regulation & Taxation Act enacted in March allows municipalities this option until December 31. However, failure to act before this deadline does not necessarily guarantee a dispensary and/or consumption lounge to be located within their borders. Municipalities that choose to opt-out by Dec. 31, can always opt back in.

The Rockefeller Institute of Government has been monitoring the opt-out decision-making process of towns, villages, and cities across the state, and has launched newly launched the Marijuana Opt-Out Tracker to track the status of the opt-out process as it is happening. The Opt-Out Tracker monitors the activities of the municipalities’ decision-making process by reviewing local governing boards, newspaper articles, legal notices for public hearings, the passage of local laws, and submissions of local laws to the Department of State.
