Interesting data around Sira Naturals in Milford

Milford voters in a ballot measure earlier this year supported banning recreational marijuana businesses from town, but with a caveat: existing businesses could continue. Of the 2,629 casting a vote in a special election, 73 percent backed that ballot measure.

First, Milford joined (even if only slightly) others across the country by approving marijuana establishments during the state ballot question in the presidential election of 2016. In September last year, Milford voters, by a little more than half, approved a bylaw to prohibit recreational marijuana establishments in the town. Then in October, at Town Meeting, voters overwhelmingly approved an amendment to allow those businesses that were established before July 2017 to continue.

ProVerde is the other of the two Milford marijuana-growing businesses that exist in town.
