Tell Us: Should Barnstable Get a Medical Marijuana Dispensary?

The Barnstable planning board voted to recommend a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries in town.


The planning board voted unanimously to recommend the moratorium Monday night, according to the Cape Cod Times. The recommendation would block any dispensaries in town until 90 days after the state releases dispensary regulations or until 2014.

The Barnstable Town Council will vote on the recommendation after public hearings.  The council is also considering limiting any future dispensaries to an area near Cape Cod Hospital.

We want to know what you think. Do you think Barnstable should have a medical marijuana dispensary? Should any future dispensaries be restricted to an area in Hyannis near Cape Cod Hospital?

NO!! Barnstable should not have one at all. We have enough problems in Hyannis already.

I don't object to a cautious approach in zoning, but the outrage surprises me. Marijuana is already pretty easy to obtain. A dispensary will just make it legal and hopefully cheaper for those who truly need it.

Are bigotry and intolerance righteous values? Should we be listening to the hysterical, immoral and weak minded individuals in our society who are terrified of the complete world which includes all naturally occurring species, who claim the position of God over their populations by denying natural reality because they can not cope?

Listening to them is not the problem, electing them is.

I think within the basis of understanding that the allowance of usage of medicinal marijuana is for the aspects of human ananotomic relations we should allow it there for the matters stating how else would we prove its copestetic boundaries of psychosis 1 and embodiment chem 3 as well as looking at the fact the most of the tetra hydro cannibanoids have been drained im all for it ve studied the chemistries of marijuana and human dna and uses for years and medicinal is the right way...
