PARIS — A request to convert a medical marijuana growing establishment by caregivers to a medical marijuana dispensary cleared its first hurdle Wednesday when the Planning Board unanimously approved its plans.

Gary Mayer of Paris presented plans to the board two weeks ago on establishing a dispensary at Paris Hill Farms at 783 Park St. The property is being used to cultivate medical marijuana by caregivers. There would be no retail sales at the dispensary, Mayer said, and the existing leases with the caregivers would end.

Mayer is one of three owners of Bay Street Acquisitions, which also owns Paris Hill Farms. The other two owners are Douglas Knickrehm and John LaRochelle, both of Durham. The next step in the process is to seek approval from the state to operate the dispensary.

During Wednesday’s public hearing, resident Rick Little questioned the legality of the operation since the town does not have a retail marijuana ordinance. He said it was his understanding that the town needed a marijuana ordinance before it could approve the request by Paris Hill Farms.

The town rejected a proposed retail marijuana ordinance in October 2020 during a special town meeting.

Mayer and the Planning Board disagreed

The Town of Ulster held a public hearing on October 21 on whether to allow retail dispensary and on-site cannabis consumption lounges within municipal boundaries following the statewide adoption earlier of the Marijuana Regulation & Taxation Act. Only four people spoke, all in favor of not opting out. 

“Recent New York state law changes allow the town to regulate and permit distribution for retail outlets and also regulate and permit public consumption in a lounge setting,” said Town Supervisor James E. Quigley III during the October 21 public hearing. “It is the Town Board’s consensus that this is such an important decision, we need public input. We have not made up our mind where we want to go. We would like to hear from the citizens in the community as to how they feel about it.”

The issue was first discussed by councilmen during a Town Board meeting held on Thursday, September 2. Town Attorney Jason Kovacs explained that while the New York State Cannabis Board will issue a range of licenses for cultivators, processors and distributors of legal marijuana, municipalities like Ulster have greater local control over retail dispensaries and on-site consumption businesses. Local governments have until December 31

Cannabis policy reform is gaining momentum. 

At the federal level, a trio of senators unveiled the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act (CAOA) this summer to deschedule, tax and regulate cannabis, and the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act passed the U.S. House for the fifth time in September as part of a defense spending package. 

At the state level, Arizona, Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota legalized adult-use in the 2020 election (although the South Dakota Legislature is now grappling with its own legalization proposal while the state’s Supreme Court deliberates whether the ballot measure is unconstitutional). In 2021, Connecticut, New Mexico, New York and Virginia all legalized adult-use cannabis legislatively. 

Only 14 states remain without full medical or adult-use legalization. With all traditionally blue states out of the way, red states are now weighing their options, perhaps seeing the inevitability of change. 

Here, Cannabis Business Times and Cannabis Dispensary share the states to watch in 2022 as ballot initiatives and legislation ramp up. 

Likely: 

Delaware (Adult-Use) 

On March 24, The Health and Human Development Committee approved House Bill 150, the Delaware Marijuana Control Act, a legislation to legalize, tax and regulate adult-use cannabis in the state.  

The legislation would establish the regulatory framework for adult-use cannabis in Delaware, allow adults 21 years and older to purchase up to one ounce of cannabis for personal use, provide opportunities for small businesses to receive licenses, and give equal access to individuals

Hilliard City Council is on track to consider an application for a medical marijuana dispensary in Mill Run.

The Hilliard Planning and Zoning Commission on Oct. 14 voted 5-0 to recommend approval of a modification to the planned-unit development zoning at 3799 Park Mill Run Drive so it may be used as a medical marijuana dispensary site.

The PUD allows for commercial and retail uses, as well as a hotel, but a modification would be required for its use as a dispensary, according to the application.

No date has been set for City Council, which will have final say on the matter, to consider the recommendation and the application itself, but it is possible it will be considered as soon as a November meeting, said David Ball, director of communications for Hilliard.
