Article : Shall the Town of Mount Washington approve the adoption of an Amendment to the Zoning By-laws prohibiting the operation of all Marijuana Establishments as defined in G.L.c. 94G, §1, including without limitation, Retailers, Cultivation, Testing Facilities, Product Manufacturing and all other types of marijuana-related businesses within the Town.
(The Board of Selectmen and Planning Board propose this Article believing that in voting for the Ballot measure in 2016 relative to marijuana the Town would not be giving up its local zoning authority to prohibit such activity; that the vote in Town reflected simply a desire to de-criminalize use and possession of marijuana; and that marijuana can be available where people want it and at appropriate locations, but that Mount Washington is not an appropriate location for such activity.
Article : Until new zoning by-laws are adopted or prohibition allowed, but for no longer than one year or such shorter time as proscribed by law, shall the Town adopt a moratorium on all Marijuana Establishments defined by G.L. c. 94G, §1 to allow the Planning Board to properly analyze said law and adopt appropriate regulations therefor.
