Ridgefield sets hearing date for regulating recreational marijuana

A decision on regulating recreational marijuana in Ridgefield could be left up to the Board of Selectmen.  The Planning and Zoning Commission voted at their meeting on Tuesday to hold a public hearing on September 14th on a year-long moratorium on growing, distributing and selling marijuana in Ridgefield.  Connecticut municipalities can either take no action, allow establishments with regulations, ban them, or impose a temporary moratorium.  Members of the Planning and Zoning Commission raised the idea this week of having the decision be left to the Selectmen, despite the state legislation giving planning and zoning bodies oversight of the rollout.  When medical marijuana was approved in Connecticut, Ridgefield put a temporary pause on facilities, and later banned them.
