JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – Two illegal marijuana dispensaries in the City of Jamestown have been shut down.
Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist announced the news on Friday.
The dispensaries, located at 214 Fairmount Avenue and 29 North Main Street, did not receive licenses to sell cannabis from the New York State Office of Cannabis Management.
Furthermore, city officials said the establishments did not comply with a cease-and-desist order from the Jamestown Department of Development, after a complaint that the businesses were selling cannabis was filed two weeks ago.
“I fully support legal cannabis and the potential for legal dispensaries in Jamestown. However, these businesses must comply with the law and have a license from the proper authorities,” wrote Mayor Eddie Sundquist in a statement. “The illegal selling of a highly-regulated drug out of a storefront is completely unacceptable. Under my administration, we will enforce the law and shut down any business that is selling cannabis illegally.”
