“I make a little fun of it,” he said with a nod to Gamache, “but I think it’s a good motion.”

It was agreed to send the idea to the zoning subcommittee.

Speaking after the meeting, Gamache said he voted in favor of the law and has no prejudice against it. He believes some people, unable to take potentially addictive pills for pain, are better off using marijuana instead.

But Gamache worried that Peabody is a likely spot for one of the shops dispensing the drug.

“We could get stuck with it. ... They probably won’t put it in Boxford or Byfield or Georgetown or Groveland.”
