Proposed Temporary Ban on Cannabis Business in Truro

Communities across Massachusetts are grappling with how to manage the cultivation and sale of cannabis after a state-wide measure for legalizing the adult use and sale of marijuana passed in 2016. 

Truro selectman have placed a warrant on the April 25th town meeting that would temporarily ban cannabis businesses in the town, but farmers hoping to cultivate the crop this year are pushing back.

On The Point, we talk about Massachusetts cannabis legislation with Sarah Peake, State Representative; Paul Wiskosky, Chair of the Truro Board of Selectmen; and Dave Dewitt, member of the Truro Agricultural Commission and farmer and part of a local cannabis cooperative. Mindy Todd hosts.
