The Planning Board held a hearing to create Medical Marijuana Overlay Districts in which dispensaries and cultivation centers would be allowed. The proposed dispensary district for the sale of marijuana would run along Route 9 between Temple and Beacon streets, excluding the area of Framingham State University, reported Boston.com
The Planning Board made no decision Monday and continued its hearing to Oct. 3. The Board is expected to make a recommendation for Special Town Meeting to vote on in mid-October.
