Northborough selectmen discuss opting out of recreational marijuana

October 25th, 2017

Northborough – The Board of Selectmen discussed the opt-out option of recreational marijuana at their Oct. 16 meeting. This option would ban the establishment of recreational marijuana and other related activities in Northborough.

A temporary moratorium which prohibits the use of land or structures for a recreational marijuana establishment until June 30, 2018, was adopted at the April Annual Town Meeting.  Northborough is also considered a “No Community” based on Question 4 results from the Nov. 8, 2016 General Election at which time 4,440 residents voted yes and 4,531 residents voted no.

As a No Community, the law allows Northborough the ability to opt out. As such, Northborough only needs approval from Town Meeting.
