Meeting to decide whether to ban sale of recreational marijuana

Milton Town Meeting will decide whether to outlaw recreational marijuana businesses in the town when it meets Oct. 23.

If approved, the measure would add Milton to a growing number of communities that have prohibited recreational marijuana establishments of all types from operating within their borders. Massachusetts legalized recreational marijuana in 2016.

Other items on the warrant for the special Town Meeting include proposed changes in the town’s sign bylaws and a measure to ensure that the rates for water bills remain flat.

“It probably won’t be too eventful,” Town Moderator Robert Hiss said of his prediction for the session.
