3 towns are open to medical marijuana clinics

Marijuana rules set by two; most delay

While most south suburbs are wary of marijuana dispensaries, at least three towns in this area have signaled they might welcome such facilities in their community.

Since Massachusetts residents voted overwhelmingly in November to legalize medical marijuana, most municipalities have opted for a moratorium of up to a year on the new law that requires zoning rules be established this spring to allow for medical marijuana dispensaries. The law, approved by 63 percent of voters, allows the state to license up to 35 dispensaries, with at least one — but no more than five — per county.
