Grow, Gift, Repair


Brewster residents approved a ban on recreational marijuana retail shops at a contentious special town meeting Monday night.

The vote on Article 13 was 632 in favor of the ban, 561 against. An attempt by opponents to reconsider the article just before 11 p.m. was rejected.

Despite that vote, residents rejected a zoning change that would have increased the distance any marijuana shop would have to be from places like schools and places of worship.
