A Massachusetts town is hoping to delay the opening on recreational marijuana dispensaries by voting on the issue.
Ashland's town manager says there will be a special meeting in two weeks, which is when the vote will take place.
The temporary hold has been proposed by the Board of Selectmen, which is asking for a year to study the potential regulation and zoning issues that come with dispensaries.
Town Manager Michael Herbert says the town's board wants to make the right decision without placing a permanent ban on dispensaries.
"We want to make sure that dispensaries are located in places that are away from," schools and family-related activities, Herbert said.
Ashland was nearly split on Question 4 this election season, and it was passed by about 350 votes.
The question of whether or not they want it sold in their town is another issue, though.
