Zoning Article XXVII - Medical Marijuana Now in Effect


This Article as proposed, is intended to permit those persons in need of marihuana for medicinal purposes as allowed under the State Acts as defined herein, to be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be treated and for those persons who are permitted to furnish Medical Marihuana, to furnish it within the limitations of the State Acts and the geographical restriction imposed by the Zoning Ordinance in order to protect public health, safety, and welfare. 

This Article is also intended to protect and preserve the public health, safety and welfare of the community, the quality of life and the stability of property values including but not limited to the value of residential, commercial, and industrial districts.

This Article is to protect and preserve peace, order, property and safety of persons as a result of issues associated with the growth of marihuana in residential and town center districts including problems with insufficient or improper electrical supply, problems with ventilation leading to mold, offensive odors, or other health hazards and other hazards which are associated with the cultivation of marihuana in Residential and Center Zoning Districts and which is otherwise often difficult to detect and regulate.
