For Immediate Release

On December 22, 2021, the Village of Nassau Board of Trustees held public hearings to get input from residents on local laws to opt out of allowing adult-use cannabis retail dispensaries and on-site consumption licenses from locating within the Village limits. In a special meeting immediately following the public hearings, the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to defeat the law opting out of cannabis retail dispensaries. This means that retail dispensaries will be allowed in the Village of Nassau. The Board also unanimously voted in favor of opting out of on-site consumption lounges for the time being due to lack of clarity on the operation and regulations surrounding said lounges. The Board of Trustees thanks all who provided input as it considered action on these matters.
