Event description

Description

On July 28, 2017 Governor Baker signed a compromise bill approved by lawmakers earlier that raises taxes on retail sales of marijuana, establishes stringent requirements for the packaging and labeling of marijuana products, and spells out procedures cities and towns must follow if they wish to ban or restrict pot shops from opening in their communities.

There are various issues local governments will confront with the adoption of this law and significant questions about exactly what should and can be done, and when, at the local level.
This workshop will address issues, including:

• Where are we now? What happens next?
• Issues to consider related to a temporary moratorium on retail sales and related operations
• Local options to regulate, including complete prohibition
• Zoning for marijuana retail, growing, and processing operations
• Taxation and municipal revenue
