Westborough selectmen approve delay of medical marijuana law

Westborough – Although the state's voters approved a ballot question in November that would allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes, many municipal officials believe there is still a lot of ambiguity regarding the exact details of how that will ruling will be implemented. The Westborough Board of Selectmen and Planning Board are among those officials. As a result, the selectmen approved at its Dec. 17 meeting a measure to delay the implementation of this new law for at least six months. As the law is currently written, some portions of it go into effect Jan. 1. Other parts are not as clear – but they must be in place by April 1. The Massachusetts Municipal Association is advocating in extending that date to July 1. As the law is currently written, some portions of it go into effect Jan. 1.

Giving thanks at Westborough High School

Westborough – If the Westborough High School community thought that perhaps they had the calendars mixed up and Thanksgiving was actually Nov. 16 this year, instead of Nov. 22, they could certainly be forgiven. On the 16th, the delicious aroma of turkey, vegetable dishes and pies was wafting through the air, courtesy of the Life Skills class. Each of the students in the Life Skills class has a different learning issue; the class is designed to teach basic skills so the participants can secure employment and live independently. As part of that initiative, they learn simple kitchen tasks including food preparation.
