Salem officials considering marijuana dispensary regulations
“They are called alternative treatment centers and only four centers can have registration certificates, which the state will issue at one time,” said Moldoff.
When the centers come in to apply with the state, they will also have to show that they comply with local zoning regulations.
However, Moldoff said the Planning Board might want to look at putting zoning regulations on the books now for the alternative treatment centers, noting that there have already been several inquiries as to whether the town will be allowing the centers.
He suggested the Planning Board look at an ordinance that would allow the facilities only in certain districts and set up setback requirements and a certain amount of distance from parks, schools, and churches.
