A group of residents seek to reverse Catskill’s rejection of potty parlors
CITY OF CATSKILL — A group of residents is seeking to overturn a city council decision banning marijuana parlors in the community.
The city council voted 3 to 1 on December 29 to refuse to allow salons, while voting against removing dispensaries. Pot parlors and dispensaries are allowed by default unless communities reject them. But residents can vote directly on licensing marijuana facilities if enough signatures are collected to call for a referendum, allowing communities to overrule their municipal governments.
