Mayor Fuller Leads Discussion on the Future of Marijuana in Newton

At a recent forum, Newton Mayor Ruthanne Fuller states that Garden Remedies located on Washington Street—the first medical marijuana dispensary in Newton—has not experienced any loitering, traffic problems, or related police calls since its establishment in 2016.

Local cannabis experts sounded off at the forum titled “Wondering About Weed?” The event, hosted by the Department of Health and Human Services is doing its part to educate local residents on the impacts the drug will have on adolescents and adults now that marijuana will be more accessible to Newton citizens.
