 AN ACT to amend the cannabis law, in relation to extending  the  opt-out
   date  for  municipalities  to  prohibit  the  establishment  of retail
   dispensary licenses and on-site consumption licenses

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 131 of the cannabis law is amended
 to read as follows:
   1.  The  licensure  and  establishment  of a retail dispensary license
 and/or on-site consumption license under the provisions of article  four
 of  this  chapter  authorizing  the retail sale of adult-use cannabis to
 cannabis consumers shall not be applicable to a town,  city  or  village
 which,  after the effective date of this chapter, and, on or before [the
 later of] December thirty-first, two thousand [twenty-one or nine months
 after the effective date of this section]  TWENTY-TWO,  adopts  a  local
 law, subject to permissive referendum governed by section twenty-four of
 the  municipal  home  rule law, requesting the cannabis control board to
 prohibit the establishment of such  retail  dispensary  licenses  and/or
 on-site  consumption licenses contained in article four of this chapter,
 within the jurisdiction of the town, city or village. Provided, however,
 that any town law shall apply to the area of the  town  outside  of  any
 village  within such town.  No local law may be adopted after [the later
 of] December thirty-first, two thousand [twenty-one or nine months after
 the effective date of this section] TWENTY-TWO  prohibiting  the  estab-
 lishment  of  retail  dispensary  licenses  and/or  on-site  consumption
 licenses; provided, however, that a local law repealing such prohibition
 may be adopted after such date.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
