Marijuana Talk Headed to Attleboro Committee
The City Council has a lengthy discussion on the possibility of opening a medical marijuana dispensary in Attleboro.
When it comes to medical marijuana, it appears nearly everybody on the Attleboro City Council has a strong opinion. There was a lengthy discussion Tuesday night about medical marijuana, its legalization by Massachusetts voters in November and how the city should prepare for the possibility of a local dispensary.
By a vote of 9-2, the council sent related measures introduced by Councilors Jonathan Weydt and Jay DiLisio to its public safety committee for further review.
Medical marijuana will be legal in Massachusetts starting Jan. 1 due to the passage of a ballot measure in November that was supported by 63 percent of voters (64 percent in Attleboro). The state health department has until the end of April to create regulations for the law.
Attleboro Patch will have more information on this story soon.
