Somerville mayor seeks marijuana moratorium

Continue reading below

Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone is seeking a one-year moratorium on licenses for medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. Curtatone said he wants to hold off on allowing licenses for marijuana centers until July 1, 2014, to give the city time to review state laws and possibly make adjustments to city zoning laws. Curtatone’s request will be considered by the Board of Aldermen’s land use committee and the city’s Planning Board, which is expected to hold a public hearing. State officials unveiled a proposed fee structure for marijuana dispensary licenses in May, but none have been distributed yet.
