CANANDAIGUA – As of now, a majority of members on Canandaigua City Council appear likely to back opting in to the state marijuana law, although there is a split – and several want to hear more from the public before any official action is taken. 

In the meantime, should the city go that route, the emphasis now will be on determining where and how legal cannabis dispensaries and/or places to consume the products can be located within its borders. 

Earlier this year, the recreational use of marijuana was legalized, although businesses will have to seek licenses in order to operate which could be a lengthy process. The earliest that can happen is Jan. 1, 2022, but for now an individual can have and use up to 3 ounces of weed anywhere where it is legal to use tobacco products.
