LIVERMORE — Voters on Tuesday adopted a 180-day moratorium on allowing medical marijuana retail stores, dispensaries, testing facilities and manufacturing facilities.
The vote was 570-530.
“It gives us six months’ time for the Planning Board to figure out how and what the town can put into effect,” Selectperson Tom Gould said at a public hearing Oct. 15.
The moratorium ordinance goes into effect immediately. It has no effect on existing businesses.
Voting was heavy Tuesday afternoon in Livermore. A moratorium ordinance on medical marijuana establishments was approved 570 to 530. (Pam Harnden/Livermore Falls Advertiser)
