ECC Applauds Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force’s Continued Vigilance of Edgemont Area Smoke Shops

Apr 25, 2023 05:02 pm

On April 24, 2023, members of the Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force along with the New York State Office of Cannabis Management (OCM), White Plains Police Department Intel Unit, and the Town of Greenburgh Building Department conducted multiple inspections of smoke shops, including a premise at 455 S. Central Ave (Scarsdale Convenience). Approximately 676 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products, which the store was not licensed to sell, along with approximately 395 packs of untaxed cigarettes and approximately 11 packages of psilocybin infused candy were seized. Additionally, the Town of Greenburgh Building Department issued approximately 84 building code violations resulting in the store being temporarily closed until further notice. Due to the serious nature of the Building Department code violations, Con Edison was contacted and all power to the business was shut off.

Previously, building code violations resulted in the temporary closure of other smoke/vape shop locations, including 205 East Hartsdale Avenue (Hartsdale Tobacco), 760 S. Central Avenue (Cloud House Convenience), and 1088 S. Central Avenue (#1 Convenience and Tobacco). Additional summonses were also issued at three other locations (74 S. Central Avenue, 610 S. Central Avenue, and 1000 S. Central Avenue) for tobacco-related violations.

The Edgemont Community Council continues to partner with the Greenburgh Town Board, the Greenburgh Police Department and the Office of Assemblyperson Amy Paulin to combat the rise of illegal marijuana sales by Smoke Shops and Convenience Stores, most significantly in close proximity to our schools.
