Massachusetts released a list of 181 groups that have applied to operate medical marijuana dispensaries, according to the Boston Globe.
12 of those groups want dispensaries in Norfolk County, which includes Westwood and 27 other towns. A maximum of 35 total licenses are allowed under a law voters approved in November legalizing medical marijuana.
While towns cannot outright ban medical marijuana dispensaries, some are exploring zoning restrictions or have ordered moratoriums.
