Planning and Zoning Commissioners looking to reject a year-long ban on medical marijuana facilities in town, instead compromised on a four-month moratorium. The compromise came at Wednesday night’s meeting, upon urging from Town Planner Jamie Brätt and the Town Attorney Mario Coppola.
Brätt and Coppola agreed that time was needed to explore the state law legalizing marijuana production and dispensaries for medical purposes and, in turn, creating regulations for the town. Brätt also said potential applicants have already contacted her office. The moratorium means that any applicant will now have to wait four months to apply.
