We wish there was a town called “cannabis” so we could write… The Cannabis planning board will host a public hearing on Tuesday, November 7, to discuss a zoning bylaw designed to keep retail recreational Sandwich shops out of Cannabis.
Childish humor we know…
The Sandwich Enterprise ( we kid you not) reports….
The planning board will host a public hearing on Tuesday, November 7, to discuss a zoning bylaw designed to keep retail recreational marijuana shops out of Sandwich.
The hearing, which will be held at the Human Services Building at 270 Quaker Meetinghouse Road, is scheduled to begin at 7 PM.
Residents can state objections to the proposed bylaw or ask questions about it. Residents will be asked at a Town Meeting on November 13 to vote on the zoning bylaw as well as an identical general bylaw restricting retail marijuana sales.
The two new bylaws specify that: “marijuana establishments…to include marijuana cultivators, independent testing laboratory, marijuana product manufacturers, marijuana retailers or any other types of licensed marijuana-related businesses, shall be prohibited within the Town of Sandwich.”
Residents overwhelmingly voted to place a moratorium on recreational marijuana sales last May at Town Meeting and, later that week, by ballot.
But that moratorium was only a temporary ban that was due to expire at the end of June 2018, said Town Manager George H. (Bud) Dunham. The new bylaws will be permanent.
