This fall, New York State is holding listening sessions throughout the state regarding regulated marijuana. There will be 15 sessions, and one of them will be held in Utica on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
The goal of the listening sessions is to get input from community members on a potential regulated marijuana program. Some of the topics that will be discussed include reducing the harms of illicit marijuana, establishing an age limit, addressing the criminal records of those who have marijuana-related offenses, and more.
The 15 sessions are free to attend, but you must register ahead of time.
The Utica listening session will be from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 10 at Holiday Inn Utica, in the Utica Business Park off of Burrstone Road. To register for the event, and for more information, click here.
