Patients who are undergoing chemotherapy, suffering from multiple sclerosis, AIDS, chronic pain or other ailments will soon have access to the city’s second medical marijuana dispensary following overwhelming approval Monday by the Newton City Council.

This new clinic will be operated by Cypress Tree Management at the corner of Route 9 and Elliot Street at the site of the former Green Tea Restaurant. Cypress Tree has expressed interest in also selling recreational marijuana at the location but that will require a separate approval and could be upended by a citizen-driven ballot quesiton to ban recreational marijuana that will go before voters on Nov. 6.

*Also on Monday, the council voted  to allow Garden Remedies )which has been operating a medical marijuana dispensary at 697 Washington Street for close to two years) a special permit to undergo renovations and sell recreational marijuana at their location, providing that the Opt-Out ballot vote and a subsequent council vote to ban recreational marijuana sales in Newton does not prevail.
