Boston’s City Council, now headed by anti-pot airhead Bill Linehan, held a hearing March 4 on medical marijuana dispensaries in Boston that was almost entirely devoted to the potential evils of having such establishments among us.
Chris Faraone of the Weekly Dig was kind enough to attend the hearing so that the rest of us wouldn’t have to. His reporting on the hearing can be found
Some highlights: Councilor-at-Large Michael Flaherty expressed the fear that medical marijuana patients would be exchanging their stash with patients from methadone clinics.
Boston Police superintendent Robert Merner described a potential dispensary by saying it might look a grow house he busted in Roxbury.
No officials from the State Department of Public Health chose to attend, and the councilors griped about that.
