The Town of North Hempstead (TONH) is holding a Town Board meeting, tomorrow, Thursday, October 25th at 7:00 pm. at Town Hall. We urge all residents to attend.  At this meeting, the Town Board is setting dates to consider two amendments to the TONH zoning code regulating the sale of marijuana products in the Town.  A link to a press release issued by the Town announcing this intent is attached below.  While we are grateful that the Town is taking seriously this assault on the quality of life in Manhasset, we urge residents to stay involved.   The press release does not answer all of our questions and there are significant gaps in what is proposed.  Although sale of medical marijuana is currently under discussion, the Town should broaden its regulatory scope to consider the possibility, indeed, the likelihood, that the State will legalize the sale of recreational marijuana in the near future.
