The businesses were located at 214 Fairmount Avenue and 29 North Main Street.
Mayor Eddie Sundquist said in a release that the businesses had not received licenses to sell cannabis from the New York State Office of Cannabis Management.
A complaint sent to the Jamestown Department of Development against the businesses resulted in a Cease-and-Desist order sent to the businesses. After failure to comply, the businesses were closed.
Sundquist said in a statement, “I fully support legal cannabis and the potential for legal dispensaries in Jamestown. However, these businesses must comply with the law and have a license from the proper authorities. The illegal selling of a highly-regulated drug out of a storefront is completely unacceptable. Under my administration, we will enforce the law and shut down any business that is selling cannabis illegally.”
