Woodstock Considers Whether To Allow Retail Marijuana Sales

WOODSTOCK, Vt. (AP) — Officials in Woodstock are considering whether to allow retail marijuana operations when such sales become legal in Vermont next year.

The Woodstock Cannabis Review Committee is wrapping up an online survey of residents and business owners, asking if the town or village should allow such shops, how important revenue to Woodstock would be, and whether they want more information on public safety, tourism and “cannabis use and youth," the Valley News reported.

“The end game is not deciding yes or no; the end game is just deciding if we are in fact going to vote on it,” said Seton McIlroy, the vice chair of the Village Trustees and a member of the cannabis review committee.

More than two dozen Vermont cities and towns held Town Meeting votes on the issue in March and most approved retail marijuana sales.
