TELL US: How Would You Feel About Having a Marijuana Dispensary in Town?

The medical marijuana ballot initiative passed on Tuesday, which means up to 35 medical marijuana dispensaries can open in 2013. Would you be OK with having one in town?

 

Medical marijuana is coming to Massachusetts. The question is: where?

The medical marijana ballot initiative that passed in Tuesday's election with 63 percent voter approval means that up to 35 medical marijuana dispensaries can open up in the state in 2013.

The new law goes into effect Jan. 1, but requires rules and regulations be set up by the Department of Public Health

Some towns and cities, such as Quincy, reportedly are already trying to line up regulations that would keep dispensaries out of their municipalities, which have proved troublesome in some of the nine states where medical marijuana dispensaries have been legal.

What do you think? Tell us in our comments section below.

One of the reasons I left Milford was because of the high percentage of drug use amongst their citizens. And now that I know they are opening up a brothel-style marajuana dispensary on the outskirts of town, I definitely will never move back there!

Do you PROMISE?!?!

Nope. I have no problem. The people have voted. like anything there will be a pecentage of people that abuse it and get bogus scripts but I think it will be watched close by authorities.I do think that they should make it look like a legit business and not a head shop as that perception doesn't help what they want. Do I think it is as dangerous as drinking and driving? Yes, but that was not the blogs question.

Yes Paul, I promise. Cross my heart and hope to never set foot in Milford again!

I see no problem with it at all its better to get clean medical marijuana that helps rather then it being laced more living then less living
