Medical marijuana delay extended


Fall Town Meeting last Tuesday voted to extend the town’s moratorium on medical marijuana facilities to next June 30. The moratorium was to have expired this week. A proposal to allow medical marijuana dispensaries in industrial districts only, with a special permit, was withdrawn by selectmen, according to Town Administrator Randall A. Buckner. He said the extension of the moratorium will allow the town time to further study the issue. Voters also approved a ban on the possession, consumption, or sale of synthetic marijuana. In other business, residents voted to prohibit the keeping of roosters, peacocks, and guinea hens in residential areas. The change came in an amendment to a bylaw that allows the keeping of one fowl per 2,500 square feet in those areas.
