Hull: Town Gears Up to Vote on Retail Cannabis Ban

Hull is gearing up for a special town meeting to vote on several articles dealing with retail cannabis shops.

There’s just a few more days until Hull Special Town Meeting, with articles calling for the regulation and outright ban on retail weed.

“This particular question, in terms of having a referendum, is a very important quality of life question for the residents of the community, and although town meeting will be well attended, we really want to make sure that the residents of the community who cannot attend town meeting, will have an opportunity to weigh in, and that’s provided for under the law, by doing a referendum question,” said Town Manager Phil Lemnios.

Lemnios said that whatever happens up or down at town meeting, the town will still decide whether or not to ban retail cannabis when selectmen call for a special ballot election, slated for March 26.

“I think that’s safe to say. I think the selectmen have kind of committed to a referendum, and at this point, we’re gearing up for that question because of the large impact, one way or the other, to the community.”

Hull Special Town Meeting is next Monday night, 7 PM, at the high school.
