The Land Use Committee last week unanimously approved the special permit for Garden Remedies, the medical marijuana dispensary slated to open on Washington Street in Newtonville, according to a story by Ellen Ishkanian in yesterday’s GlobeWest. The full board will vote on it next week.
I was happy to read that Alderman Norton is no longer opposed to the
dispensary special permit. She was quoted as follows:
“I had great concern, particularly related to security and the amount of cash that would be at the site. To my mind, those have been largely addressed.”
