Danbury Zoners to receive draft recreational cannabis business regulations

When the Danbury Zoning Commission meets tomorrow night, they'll receive draft regulations on recreational marijuana sales in the City.  The Commission has scheduled a public hearing on the zoning changes related to cannabis for July 12th. 

The proposal would allow four types of permitted businesses, but not on Main Street.  According to the draft, the number of dispensary, retailer, and micro-cultivator businesses would be capped at no more than four at any time citywide.  The Mill Plain Road medical marijuana dispensary counts toward the cap. 

The businesses would be restricted to certain commercial and industrial zones not near schools, parks and houses of worship. Seven other kinds of businesses permitted in state law, such as cannabis food and beverage manufacturing, would be banned.

Also according to the draft, patrons will not be able to consume cannabis in marijuana businesses, and marijuana businesses must have a written “odor abatement program” as a condition of approval to ensure the business contains “any detectable impacts beyond the physical limits of the building.”
