Milford Daily News: Heading to the polls in force Tuesday, voters backed a ban on recreational marijuana shops and grow and testing facilities in town. The referendum, with 56.3 percent of voters supporting the prohibition, came less than a year after a majority of Milford voters supported legalizing the drug in a statewide election. Donna Niro, chairwoman of Milford Community Against Recreational Marijuana Retail Establishments (CARES), said the results indicate voters are concerned with what local marijuana shops could mean for underage drug users and Milford’s reputation.
“This is very positive and I think that’s what the voters had in mind: protecting the health of their children; keeping Milford a safe community to live in; and protecting Milford’s image,” she said.
Tuesday’s vote garnered attention from across Massachusetts since Milford was the first to conduct a referendum after state lawmakers updated recreational marijuana laws this summer to detail how communities could opt out of hosting marijuana businesses. Milford voted 51.9 percent in favor – with about a 500-vote margin – of the state ballot to legalize recreational use at the time. On Tuesday, 43.7 percent of voters voted against banning businesses. The ban also restricts the town’s two medical marijuana businesses from expanding into testing and growing the drug for recreational use, and could mean both will need to relocate to compete with competitors, their owners said.
“Protecting the health of children?” You’re living in a town we’ve written about a bunch of times for kids getting run over by hit and run drivers, ratchets stabbing each other in parking lots, and fentanyl busts. And the thing you’ve decided is the biggest threat to the health of your children is…….weed?? We’re not talking about coke here. We talkin bout WEED!!!
Am I living in an episode of reefer madness? People still think like this? Here’s the lady that lead the “no pot” revolt:
That lady right there needs to smoke a joint more than anyone I’ve ever seen. She just cost her town insane amounts of money from start up business taxes, because she thinks that smoking a plant is gonna make children jump out of windows.
Get used to this people. Marijuana is the new casinos. People vote for them to be legalized but then cry when this legalized product comes to their town.
This is how stupid you have to be to believe that marijuana should not be sold in your town:
“Maybe the kids won’t do pot at all.”
Be more square. You can’t.
Newsflash Kathy – your kids will smoke pot. The difference is now they’re gonna get it from Diego the shwagg man in Woonsocket and Milford is gonna lose out on lots of revenue from the insane sales tax on pot, and the property taxes that these pot companies would’ve paid to the town. So at the end of the day nothing has changed, except the fact that Milford is gonna have significantly less money to do things with.
But yea, “the children.” Nice going morons.
We urge you to support the following local businesses. They provide terrific services for the community!
