The town of Amsterdam is imposing a 30-day moratorium on the installation or consideration of recreation marijuana dispensaries or cannabis consumption sites. It comes after recreational marijuana got the green light from the state.

The town board held a special meeting Wednesday night, introducing a resolution opting out of retail sales of marijuana.

That action needs to go through a public hearing.

The hearing is set for April 28.
