CB 1 Discusses New Cannabis Dispensaries – Western Queens Gazette

The Executive Board of Community Board 1 met on September 11 via Zoom to discuss four newly li­censed premises authorized by the State Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) within CB 1.

The new licensed premises are:

Domenica62 Retail License, Astoria Boulevard, Astoria NY 11102

37th St. SRJS Corp., Steinway Street, Astoria NY 11103

BazzJAT Retail Inc., 47-00 Northern Boulevard, Long Island City, NY 11101

Urban Clouds LLC, Broadway, Astoria, NY 11106

On September 12, the Cannabis Control Board voted to expand applications to legally grow, process or sell cannabis in New York State although an ongoing lawsuit has brought the retail cannabis industry to a standstill.

CAURD licenses were put on hold in August after a group of veterans filed a lawsuit alleging the pro­gram is unconstitutional and a state Supreme Court Justice issued an injunction temporarily suspending the approval of 460 CAURD licenses and the opening of new dispensaries.
