MWDN: Southborough Planning Board to consider regulating marijuana dispensaries

Now that medical marijuana is legal in the state of Massachusetts, municipalities, including Southborough, are grappling with how to regulate dispensaries. Reports the Metrowest Daily News:

The Planning Board will look to include some type of zoning regulations surrounding medical marijuana dispensaries in its large-scale zoning overhaul, members said Monday.

The board said it will wait until the state comes out with its regulations in May, however, to determine what exactly it would like to do. One option that was discussed last week was a one-year moratorium, member Kathleen Bartolini said.

Many towns, including Natick, Framingham and Hudson, are considering one-year-moratoriums to allow town leaders to develop new zoning regulations. Westborough Town Meeting voters have already approved zoning regulations relating to dispensaries.

The Real Reason Marijuana is Illegal!!!
