    Board to discuss delay on pot dispensaries

    As applications stream in across the state for medical marijuana businesses, Stow officials are eyeing the trend warily, as they put forward plans for a temporary moratorium on the establishments until November 2014. The Planning Board will hold a public hearing on Oct. 8 to have residents weigh in on the temporary ban, which is designed to buy the town time until it can formulate a zoning bylaw setting boundaries on the establishments. The moratorium would have to be approved by Town Meeting to take effect.
