If medical marijuana is to be implemented in a way that works for municipalities, thoughtful planning will be needed. This was the topic at hand at the South Shore Coalition’s (SSC) roundtable discussion, Planning for Medical Marijuana, on November 14, 2013, in Weymouth, Mass. And judging by the size of the audience and number of questions, it was a topic of great interest. Click here for resources.
Jody Lehrer, MPA, presented and moderated. The panel included Chris Di lorio, Planning Director in Norwell, Mass., Marcia Rasmussen, Director and Planning and Land Management in Concord, Mass., Daniel Fortier, Town Planning in Dennis, Mass., Kay Doyle, Esq., associate attorney at Kopelman and Paige, P.C., and Richard Huckson, Esq., principal attorney at Deutsch, Williams Brooks Derensis & Holland.
There was a lively question and answer period that lasted well after the forum officially ended, with participants and presenters sharing ideas and material.
