Framingham

Board ponders medical marijuana rules

Continue reading below

Discussions covering local medical marijuana dispensaries continued last week as the Planning Board worked to refine a proposed bylaw to regulate where the facilities should be located in town. The board wants to create a special district for dispensaries along Route 9 between Temple and Beacon streets, excluding the area of Framingham State University, while related cultivation sites would be limited to an industrial area in the southern section of town. No dispensary would be allowed within 500 feet of a site where children congregate, according to the draft bylaw, or in a single-family or general residential zone. It may be difficult for a dispensary to find a site under the bylaw, and some tenants in the town’s industrial parks were “not exactly thrilled” with having a cultivation operation as a neighbor, said Planning Board chairwoman Christine Long.
