BOSTON — A group representing cities and towns across Massachusetts has voted to oppose a proposed ballot question that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
Members of the Massachusetts Municipal Association say they are concerned the question would limit the ability of communities to shape the way pot retailers would be allowed to operate in their cities and towns.
They say the question would block municipalities from enacting “meaningful numerical caps” on the number of marijuana stores, except by special city or town referendum.
The association also raised concerns about a provision that would allow households to cultivate up to 12 plants each. The group says that could lead to a black market for the drug.
The proposal would make Massachusetts the fifth state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana
