That possible future won a vote of support from an aldermanic committee that greenlit the legal sale of marijuana on Long Wharf — including on an industrial stretch of Sargent Drive where a Massachusetts-based cannabis dispensary hopes to move in to the longtime, soon-to-be-former home of Long Wharf Theatre.
The vote came Tuesday night at a Board of Alders Legislation Committee meeting, which was held in person in the Aldermanic Chamber on the second floor of City Hall. The meeting was also live video-streamed online via the alders’ YouTube account.
The committee alders voted unanimously in support of an amended version of a zoning amendment concerning “the responsible and equitable regulation of adult-use cannabis,” as the title of the law change puts it.
That zoning update now advances to the full Board of Alders for a potential debate and final vote.
