Why can’t you get Marijuana in Winchester, MA?
Despite the fact that recreational marijuana is legal in the state of Massachusetts, it’s still against the law to sell it in the town of Winchester, MA. Why? Because The Massachusetts Marijuana Legalization Initiative that legalized recreational cannabis in Massachusetts also enabled cities and towns to make their own rules. At the Winchester Town Meeting on November 19, 2017, 89 people voted against allowing recreational cannabis shops to open in Winchester while just 44 people voted in favor of recreational cannabis.
As a result of this vote among a profoundly small percentage of Winchester’s population, no business can engage in the sale of recreational marijuana. It’s worth noting that in 2017, there were 15,384 voters registered in the town of Winchester. Does an 89-44 vote seem fair? It’s a question Winchester residents should ask themselves and their town leadership at their next Town Meeting.
