Connections: What discretion will municipalities have over recreational marijuana rules?

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

New York becomes the 15th state to legalize recreational marijuana... but what if your town decides to say no? Municipalities will have some discretion over what is allowed, and what is restricted. Smoking in town parks? Dispensaries? Home cultivation? There is likely to be heated debate in the months to come; some towns are already hearing from residents who are concerned about "family values."

Our guests discuss what's next:
