Public hearing set in Newtown on proposed marijuana-related ban

Greater Danbury area municipalities, like all others in the state, will now have to decide whether to allow recreational marijuana sales now that it's become legal in Connecticut.  When medical marijuana was approved, Danbury created a temporary moratorium and could do the same later this month when the Zoning Commission meets.  Ridgefield prohibits medical marijuana facilities. Permits for retailers don't start until next summer at the earliest.  The Newtown Planning and Zoning Commission is holding a public hearing on the issue tonight.  Newtown’s proposed ban would not affect individuals, but it would apply to cultivators, producers, retailers and dispensaries.  The hearing is at 7pm in the Newtown Municipal Center.
