The moratorium on medical marijuana facilities in Ridgefield is set to expire next month. The moratorium was adopted in 2013, extended last fall and ends on November 7th.
12 municipalities in the state have moratoriums.
The state Department of Consumer Protection will be issuing three new licenses for dispensaries in New Haven or Fairfield Counties due to the number of patients registered for the medical marijuana program in the region. There are six dispensaries in the state including in Bethel. 19 applications were submitted to the state for new facilities.
At their meeting Tuesday, the Ridgefield Planning and Zoning Commission members decided to look at the possibility of letting the moratorium end. The Ridgefield Press reports that the town received three calls of vendors interested in locating a facility in Ridgefield.
