Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Task Force
The Marijuana Regulation and Taxation advisory task force will help lead the City of Kingston’s transition into allowing local marijuana dispensaries in accordance with the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA).
New York State continues to develop regulations related to adult use of marijuana, revising long-standing law enforcement policies and creating new business opportunities throughout the State. The City has not opted out of allowing licensing for local dispensaries and on-site consumption. While the NY State Office of Cannabis Management will control that process, the City of Kingston has created a task force to gather community input regarding these policy changes.
The MRTA task force will meet periodically over 12 months and its mission is to help guide the City of Kingston in our limited authority over the time, place and manner of retail operations. The task force will help to amplify community voices regarding enforcement concerns and goals for how MRTA tax proceeds can be reinvested to achieve the law’s social equity objectives.
