Danvers takes steps to zone marijuana dispensaries

(Continued)

“The reality is, this is coming,” Trask said.

Trask said he does not favor putting the dispensaries in a medical zone, given that such facilities could reject them on their properties for fear of risking their licenses. Besides, Trask said, Endicott Street is too near schools, homes and businesses; the Hathorne section of town is not far from the new regional vocational school site; and the former Hunt Hospital site on Lindall Hill is surrounded by a residential neighborhood.

Peg Sallade, program director of the DanversCare prevention coalition, thanked the board for taking the step to zone marijuana dispensaries, calling it “a well-thought-out decision” to protect young people and the public.
