For John, BLUF: The General Court dragging this out isn't helping. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Boston Herald and Reporter Dan Atkinson, on Monday, 22 May.
Here is the lede plus one:
Mayor Martin J. Walsh blasted towns looking to ban sales of recreational marijuana despite residents voting to legalize it last year, saying the state Legislature needs to put a halt on plans that could lead to Boston being overwhelmed by suburban pot buyers.Well, he has a point. The voters voted for Pot.
"If they voted for it, they should have a pot shop in their neighborhood, they shouldn't have to drive to Boston for it," Walsh said on Boston Herald Radio. "I don't think the Legislature should allow exemptions, if there are I think it's unfair and unfortunate. Shame on them if they do."
I would summarize the Mayor's viewpoint as "Let your own neighborhood go to pot."
