Just under 25 months after Newton and Massachusetts first voted to approve adult-use recreational marijuana, the Newton City Council finally approved, 19-3, the zoning regulations that will allow up to eight retail cannabis stores to open here Monday night.  It will still be months before Garden Remedies on Washington Street begins selling recreational.  And there will likely be protracted Land Use battles when other business owners seek the needed special permits to open in what will inevitably be seen as in someone’s backyard.  But this is still a milestone.
