CONNECTICUT: Wilton’s moratorium on medical marijuana facilities will come to an end by the middle of November, a 5 to 4 vote by the Planning & Zoning Commission decided Monday, Oct. 27. The commission voted to end the moratorium after a public hearing was unattended by any members of the public.
Five commissioners voted in favor of lifting the moratorium, deciding to place special regulations on the permitting of medical marijuana dispensaries and production centers.
The four dissenting voters — Frank Wong, Bas Nabusli, John Comiskey and Peter Schuie — were also in favor of lifting the moratorium, but were opposed to raising regulations on such facilities.
“I just want to point out there are probably more dangerous things behind the CVS counter than there would be in a medical marijuana facility,” Mr. Wong said. “I don’t see why we need regulations that do not serve or benefit the community in any way.”
