New Milford Town Council starts talks on legalized cannabis use

The New Milford Town Council has taken up the issue of legalized recreational marijuana.  At Monday's meeting, members discussed what the new state law means for the town and how to approach use and sales.  Mayor Pete Bass told the Town Council that it's now legal to smoke, so they should plan ahead for kind of unintended consequences with a regulated experience that provides security for everyone.  The state legislation allows municipalities to use zoning and other regulations to outline cannabis sales and places of use within their towns.  Bass raised the idea of prohibiting the use of cannabis on town properties, like the green, and schools.  The issue will likely be discussed again at the Town Council's August meeting.
