I am writing to draw attention to the recent Dobbs Ferry Board of Trustees decision to opt in for cannabis dispensaries, which reverses the 2021 opt out vote. The trustees Dec. 13 vote disregards respectful requests to table the decision from our schools superintendent, chief of police, local health professionals, and many, many residents. It also binds our Village to cannabis dispensaries indefinitely, as all opt-ins are nonreversible. 

Thankfully, NYS law allows the decision about cannabis dispensaries to revert back to the voters of Dobbs Ferry via a permissive referendum.
