Framingham: Selectmen support 3 medical marijuana dispensaries

FRAMINGHAM – Three proposed medical marijuana dispensaries cleared a hurdle to open in Framingham as selectmen voted Tuesday to grant them key letters of support.

Out of six applicants, selectmen chose only the three — Beacon Compassionate Care, 315 Worcester Road; CommCan Inc., 331 Worcester Road; and Manna Wellness, 665 Cochituate Road — to support in their bids to obtain licenses from the state.

Chairman Charlie Sisitsky, who voted against Manna, said he wanted to give residents access to medical marijuana but start out slowly since it’s a new industry.

“I don’t think we want the town of Framingham to be known as the medical marijuana dispensary capital of MetroWest,” he said.

Selectmen voted unanimously to support their No. 1 pick, Beacon Compassionate Care, and approved the other two proposals in split votes, 4-1 for CommCan and 3-2 for Manna.
