Can people consume marijuana in restaurants?

Not with the Warrant Articles proposed and approved at the Annual May 2018 Town Meeting. The CCC has not yet begun licensing “Social Consumption” Marijuana Retailers (businesses selling marijuana for on-site consumption). In addition, under State law, a community must “opt-in” before the CCC will license Social Consumption establishments there, through a Town-wide referendum. The law details the procedures for this. The Town provides for this Use by Special Permit in anticipation of CCC's licensing of these establishments in order to have measures in place.
