Public Hearing Set for Binghamton’s First Licensed Cannabis Shop
The Binghamton planning commission will hold a public hearing on the city's first licensed cannabis retail store.
The shop to be operated by On Point Cannabis at 75 Court Street is expected to open soon. The site has been home to Just Breathe, a business that has been selling hemp-derived products since the summer of 2021.
Owner Damien Cornwell was awarded one of New York state's first retail marijuana licenses last November.
Cornwell initially had hoped to begin cannabis sales in early January but the preparation work to meet state requirements has taken longer than anticipated.
Cornwell discussed some details of the operation during a planning commission a few weeks ago.
The commission has scheduled a public hearing on the site plan review and a special use permit for the new business. The session is set for Tuesday at 5:50 p.m. in the Binghamton city council chambers at City Hall.
A sign at Just Breathe on Monday afternoon indicated the place is closed until Friday. Cornwell was not available to comment on the revised schedule for launching cannabis sales.
