MONROE, Conn. (AP) — Monroe planning and zoning officials are considering a moratorium on marijuana dispensaries as they figure out Connecticut's new state medical marijuana law.
Shelton and Ansonia have already imposed moratoriums to study how their zoning regulations fit in with the state law for marijuana dispensing facilities.
In Monroe, a proposal has been made for a marijuana production facility at a vacant industrial building.
William Agresta, Monroe's planning and zoning administrator, told the Connecticut Post (http://bit.ly/1e5DZZa) the town is sorting out the state law.
"What we are looking for is time to sort out the new state law on this and decide whether this is something we want to allow in Monroe, and if so, what the right zone for something like this is," said.
The state General Assembly's Regulation Review Committee approved regulations in August spelling out details of a licensing system for marijuana producers and dispensaries.
The proposal for Monroe was submitted by chiropractor Rod Deraney, who has experience growing medical marijuana in California. The proposal calls for a medical marijuana growing facility in an industrial zone where a toy manufacturer used to operate a distribution center.
