West Hartford Ban of Medical Marijuana Facility Fails
After hours of debate, the Town Council approved an ordinance allowing medical marijuana facilities in one industrial zone in town.
The West Hartford Town Council failed to impose a town-wide ban on medical marijuana facilities at its meeting this week.
The proposed ban reportedly failed across party lines early Wednesday following hours of debate on the issue.
An amended ordinance proposed by Democratic councilor Leon Davidoff passed 6-3 along party lines, following the debate, according to the West Hartford News. The rule will require a 200-foot buffer zone between schools, parks, residential areas and places of worship. And, facilities will only be allowed in a specific industrial zone in the Elmwood neighborhood of town, according to the ordinance.
