Press Release From the Marijuana Policy Advisory Committee: Explanation of Warrant Articles Related to Recreational Marijuana to be considered at Easton's Annual Town Meeting on May 21, 2018

In November of 2016, voters of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts passed Question 4 at the ballot box, legalizing recreational marijuana usage throughout the state, with commercial cultivation, manufacture and retail sales of marijuana going into effect in 2018. In May of 2017, Easton Town Meeting voted to adopt a moratorium on the sale of marijuana within the Town to run through June 30, 2018. To prepare marijuana policy options for the May 2018 Annual Town Meeting, the Easton Board of Selectmen established the Marijuana Policy Advisory Committee (MPAC) in September 2017.  Consisting of representatives of the Selectmen, Planning and Zoning Board, Board of Health, and Police Department, MPAC was to report policy recommendations to the Board of Selectmen for the necessary regulation and/or prohibition of marijuana within the Town.
