Chicopee Council takes 1st vote on recreational marijuana moratorium | masslive.com

The city has granted a permit to a company that will allow it to open a medical marijuana facility on East Main Street.

CHICOPEE – A plan to delay the opening of any recreational marijuana facility for one year made it through the first legislative step but still needs more study before it is adopted.

The City Council’s Zoning Committee approved the plan to wait at least a year before granting any permit to open a facility in the city. The City Council then voted 13-0 on Wednesday to send the proposal to its Ordinance Committee so the regulations could be drafted. The full City Council will have to take a final vote on the ordinance when it is created.

“We want to make sure there will not be mom and pop shops, or mom and pot shops, popping up on every corner,” City Councilor Shane D. Brooks said.
