New Milford considers fines for people smoking pot on town property

The New Milford Town Council will hold a public hearing next month about a proposed ordinance that would lead to fines for people found smoking or vaping marijuana on or inside town properties.  The hearing is set for November 14th at 6:30pm.  There was an effort last year to create such an ordinance, but it wasn't taken up.  The state has changed how municipalities can ban cannabis use.  There can be a vote, a townwide ordinance or enactment of zoning regulations. The New Milford Town Attorney noted that the proposed ordinance is consistent with the town’s regulation of cigarette use.
