Hingham: Articles on Recreational Marijuana on Town Meeting Warrant

In Hingham, the Board of Selectmen are starting to put together the warrant for Annual Town Meeting in April.

Included are articles on recreational marijuana. The town currently has a moratorium in place that is set to expire on June 30th.

Through a zoning and a general bylaw, voters will be asked if they want to ban recreational marijuana establishments in town.

If that fails, Mary Power, the Chair of the Selectmen, says voters will have options for implementation.

“Town Meeting will be given a series of warrant articles that will regulate the time, manner, and place of those establishments, as well as an opportunity for taxation,” said Power. “In terms of the sequence of those articles, we still have to figure it out.”

The Board of Selectmen will begin discussing articles on the warrant in February.

“We will have ample opportunity, and we welcome everybody in the public to let us know what they think,” said Power.
