Village Council “Opts Out” – No weed cultivation, manufacture, or sales to be permitted anywhere in Ridgewood
by Boyd Loving
Village Council members just agreed to introduce and approve an ordinance in the very near future that will prohibit the establishment/operation of any business engaged in the cultivation, manufacture, sale, or delivery of cannabis products anywhere within Village limits.
If the Council does not take such action by August 21, 2021, any class of cannabis establishment or distributor will be permitted to operate in the municipality, and depending on the type of establishment, be considered a permitted use in certain zones.
Council members expressed concern that allowing cannabis businesses to operate within Village limits could result in increased crime rates and “nuisance gatherings.”
The good news for Ridgewood’s many recreational cannabis users is that Village officials cannot prohibit the delivery of cannabis items and related supplies by a delivery service within Village limits.
