(Northampton, MA) – Northampton is opening its arms to medical marijuana dispensaries. In a unanimous vote Thursday night, the City Council approved a resolution supporting the awarding of a license for a dispensary in the city. The council also approved zoning rules that would permit dispensaries in any business district where a medical facility is allowed, creates a buffer zone from schools, and mandates proper ventilation. Marisa Hebble with the Northampton Prevention Coalition argued the ordinance weakens some of the state restrictions that limit access to children. Five groups are vying for licenses to open dispensaries in Hampshire County. One of them, Hampshire Health, would open a dispensary in a former doctor’s office at 118 Conz St.
