Voters back marijuana dispensaries moratorium


Voters at the annual Town Meeting Monday made quick work of most warrant items, including unanimously approving a moratorium on medical marijuana treatment centers for at least a year, to give the Panning Board a chance to create regulations. Voters also approved $12 million for the town’s share in the Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District budget, and $1.08 million for its share of the Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School budget. Capital-improvement articles approved included money for three new police cruisers and a pickup truck with plow and wood-chipper attachments. There were 123 voters at the meeting, according to the town clerk’ s office.
