Many Connecticut towns like Farmington and West Hartford have recently passed medical marijuana moratoriums and on Tuesday the Avon Planning and Zoning Commission will discuss its options on the subject.
The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Selectmen's Chambers at Avon Town Hall, building 1.
Medical marijuana productions and dispensaries cannot open in a town for the duration of a moratorium.
The state Department of Consumer Protection released medical marijuana regulations in September, setting a two-month deadline for applications for production and dispensary facilities, according to the town.
While the Farmington commission has not received any formal applications, Town Planner Robert Phillips said that he has gotten one inquiry on opening a medical marijuana facility to Farmington.
