NEW YORK: The village of Islandia is not one of the locations being mentioned as a site for any of the state’s 20 approved medical marijuana dispensaries, but that didn’t stop its Board of Trustees from passing a law anyway making the sale of pot there illegal.
Some residents praised the pre-emptive rejection.
“It could destroy your life,” one man told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “Just say no.”
“Kids are going to abuse that stuff,” another man said. “Especially I have three stepkids, so I don’t want them anywhere near that stuff.”
Islandia Mayor Allan Dorman said he believes medical marijuana should only be distributed by doctors, not in stores.
