Plympton: Not ideal for a medical marijuana facility

Plympton is not expecting to have a Medical Marijuana facility in their town.

Town Coordinator Dale Pleau said they have not had any companies express interest in opening a treatment center there. “Just by circumstance we’re sort of off the radar screen,” he said, “We’re the smallest town surrounded by much larger towns.”

Pleau suggested that the product would be used more in some of the greater populated surrounding communities such as Plymouth or Middleborough.

The town voted at annual town meeting in May of 2013 for a temporary moratorium until July 1st of this year. Until then, the Board of Selectmen will be looking at different options for an actual medical marijuana by-law. That by-law will be an article at this year’s annual town meeting.
