In reversal, Cairo OKs dispensaries

File photo The Cairo Town Board reversed its December 2021 decision on cannabis dispensaries and voted Monday to allow them in the town. The vote to reject the dispensaries and the vote to permit them were an identical 3-2.

CAIRO — Ten months after the town board opted out of marijuana dispensaries, Cairo officials Monday reversed their decision and voted to accept them, becoming the first Greene County municipality to change its mind.

The Cairo Town Board passed the new local law to opt in to the state legislation. Possession and use of recreational marijuana will be legal for town residents 21 and older when sales are permitted.

Watts- “For me it’s about the public’s response…”

Also Watts- “I talked to the members of the board before the meeting and we all agreed we were opposed to the lounges.”

How, in the same interview, a person can contradict themselves is beyond me. IT ALL SHOULD be up to the people of the Town of Cairo.
