Mayor Duncan’s veto will remain in medicinal marijuana debate in Norwalk
Norwalk Mayor Rob Duncan’s veto against medicinal marijuana cultivation in the city…will remain.
This comes after City Council decided Tuesday to not fight the veto.
Councilman Chris Castle, who co-sponsored the legislation in favor of medicinal marijuana cultivation, told WLKR News that the veto basically scared off the potential marijuana cultivation company; and once the economic potential was lost, they didn’t see any reason to push the argument any further.
Two weeks ago, before the veto, council had voted 4 to 3 in favor of welcoming a medicinal marijuana facility to Norwalk.
