At the most recent meeting of the Board of Selectmen, the Medical Marijuana Study Committee presented its proposed amendment regulating where dispensaries could be sited in town. The proposal stipulates that a registered marijuana dispensary must be within a business district, excluding Carlisle Center, and would require a special permit from the Planning Board. The proposed amendment also excludes sites within 1,000 feet of a recognized gathering place likely to host children, such as a church, recreation facility, or day-care center. Currently, only three sites in town would meet the necessary criteria for a dispensary. A vote on the amendment is scheduled for Town Meeting on April 28.
