Both our town election on 3/27 and our annual town meeting (ATM) on April 24 we will be voting to determine whether Medfield should allow or ban marijuana stores.
The following materials were put together by residents Carol Read, a Public Health/Prevention Specialist, and Cathy Callaghan, a Nurse Practitioner, both with lots on knowledge about the issues.
I will personally be voting to ban marijuana businesses from our town, as pot shops downtown or anywhere in town would send the wrong message to our children, namely that use by them is OK. The data is too clear as to the damage that marijuana use does to our children, by increasing their risks of problems later in life. Adolescent brains are not fully formed until their mid-twenties, and we owe it to our children to give them as much protection until then as we can.
