Selectmen considered options including imposing a temporary moratorium on sales of the drug until town officials can review state regulations set to be released in March 2018. Likewise, they also discussed the possibility of enacting a permanent ban on sales. The board decided not to pursue such a permanent ban, and shied away from the prospect of imposing a moratorium in the near future, instead agreeing to begin preparing regulatory items to be voted on at next May’s Town Meeting.
