Pembroke selectmen have placed an article on the February 12th Special Town Meeting warrant to establish a medical marijuana zone. The zone would be located in the extreme northeast corner of Pembroke in a commercial area many people may assume lies in the town of Marshfield. It occupies the space on either side of Route 139 east of Route 3.
The zone satisfies the requirements of the recently passed state law – 1,500 feet from a residence or school. The planning board will make a recommendation Feb. 11th. Town Meeting may or may not approve the zone the following night.
Pembroke established its adult entertainment zone in the same location a few years ago. No adult entertainment enterprise has taken advantage of the zoning.
