US (NY): Jamestown working to lure cannabis growers

The City of Jamestown is launching a new initiative aimed at bringing the commercial cannabis business into the city and it could generate millions of dollars in tax revenues.

Leaders in the small Chautauqua County town say it is the perfect fit for both large and small cannabis growers while also giving the community a chance to revitalize its economy.

“The cannabis industry is really the new frontier here in the City of Jamestown and as a city, we've never been afraid of new frontiers and new things,” remarked Eddie Sundquist, mayor of Jamestown.

The City of Jamestown, incorporated in 1886, is probably best-known as the hometown of legendary comedian Lucille Ball and Jamestown Furniture.
