Rule Full Text

The City Sheriff, by and through the New York City Department of Finance (“DOF”), is proposing a rule relating to the City Sheriff’s enforcement of unlicensed cannabis activity. This rule is being proposed as a continuation of the rule adopted on an emergency basis and published in the May 7, 2024 issue of the City Record.

This proposed rule would:

- specify the civil penalties for violations of Administrative Code 7-551;
- establish how the City Sheriff may designate personnel of other City agencies to conduct enforcement efforts;
- outline the circumstances in which the Sheriff may seal a place of business; and
- detail other mechanisms necessary to achieve a comprehensive enforcement of unlicensed cannabis activity.
